Anger tamed

Driving Into the Wal-Mart parking lot recently, deep in conversation with my daughter, I inadvertently cut off a woman and her son who were trying to walk in front of my car.

The woman got so angry she pounded on the rear end of my car as I passed by When I heard the loud bang, the cowgirl in me sprang to life. Even though I was in the wrong and immediately sorry for my thoughtlessness, everything changed when she hit my vehicle. I was ready to jump out and deck her. Thank goodness I was slowed down by having to hunt for a place to park.

Still, I marched into the store—a grandma with a mission. I hadn't had a good look at the woman, but I had caught a glimpse of her son's yellow jacket. I was going to find her and tell her a thing or two!
