Driving Miss Daisy~

Have you seen the movie~Driving Miss Daisy? It is the cutest movie!

Here are some quotes from the Movie~
Daisy Werthan: Did you have the air-conditioning checked? I told you to have the air-conditioning checked.
Hoke Colburn: I had the air-conditioning checked. I don't know what for. You never allow me to turn it on.
Daisy Werthan: Hush up!

Daisy Werthan: Hoke?
Hoke Colburn: Yes'm.
Daisy Werthan: You're my best friend.
Hoke Colburn: No, go on Miss Daisy.
Daisy Werthan: No, really, you are...
[Takes Hoke's hand]
Daisy Werthan: You are.
Hoke Colburn: Yes'm.

Daisy Werthan: [on the phone, trying to get a ride to her hair appointment] Well, I need you now, I have to be at the beauty parlor in half an hour... no, I most certainly did NOT know you have to call a minimum of three hours ahead! I don't know why you call yourselves a taxicab company if you can't provide taxicabs!
Idella: [in the other room, polishing a table] Why don't you call your son down at the mill? He'll send somebody for you.
Daisy Werthan: That won't be necessary... I'll just cancel the appointment and fix my own hair!
Idella: Sometimes I think you ain't got the sense God gave a lemon!

Today is my day to drive Miss Daisy. Every Friday I feel like I get to be in this movie. ~

A friend~of a friend~ called me about a year ago and asked me if I wanted a little part time job. I like to have a little pocket change so I decided I would go meet Miss Billie.

When I got there, Miss Billie was sure I could start right away and she would need me to be there everyday. Well as a stay at home Mom, who home- schools, I just had to turn her down on her offer. It happened to be at the end of the school year so I told her I would help her out three days a week through the summer. She really needed some help~so I committed to just the summer. She would continue to look for someone to replace me before August ~time to start back to school. Something happened during that summer.

Let me describe Miss Billie to you. She is beautiful, tall with the straightest posture, she is 84 years young, she knows everything a History book could every tell you, she can recite anything you would want to hear~ she is brilliant. She is organized and has the sharpest mind! She can garden and knows most everything on the subject. She feeds the birds for the entire city~no really. The birds know her address by heart. Her squirrels are the most obese squirrels I have ever seen. Miss Billie even buys food for the raccoons. She does have an enemy~the neighbors cat that roams free. The cat has been labeled a serial killer and Billie is on the look out for the cat at all times. She also wants everything her way and her way alone. We had a few go arounds and meetings of the mind~ if you know what I mean. She won!! She wins every time! She is the most incredible lady~I enjoy spending time with her.

What happened? ~ I fell in love with Miss Billie.

By the end of the summer she had not found anyone that would conform to her and only her way of thinking. By this time I ~ I hated the thought of just anyone helping Miss Billie so I hired my MOM. Wasn't that a good idea? My mother drives Miss Billie Monday through Thursday and I go every Friday afternoon to drive Miss Billie. It has become a time I look forward to each week. She makes me lunch and we visit. I have learned the most amazing things from Miss Billie. I have also learned that life goes by so quickly and that we need to stop and cherish each and every day while we are here on earth. I am so glad God brought Miss Billie into my life.

God has blessed my life richly by giving me a friend named~ Miss Billie. It is my desire that I know for sure Miss Billie has accepted Christ as her Saviour. Would you pray with me?

I am now off to drive Miss Billie~Have a great day!
