I know I'm a big old softie… That was confirmed again this morning when I was driving to work. I was going south on the M1 towards Joburg, between Grayston and Corlett drives, when I happened to glance to my left. There was a girl in a black BMW 120i, and she was sobbing. Big, heaving sobs. She was obviously very upset. She tried to keep it together, but she kept bursting into tears. She was of Oriental persuasion, she looked Japanese I think. Sitting there in the traffic I felt very sorry for this girl. There she was, every inch the professional in her business attire and car, but looking so vulnerable and distraught. I wished that I could just pull her over, give her a big hug and tell her that it would be okay. I don't know what it is that has upset her, but I imagine that at the moment, for her it seems huge and insurmountable. To you, lady in the BMW, whoever you are, I pray that you get over this issue in your life, that it will pass quickly, and that you come on the other side stronger and wiser.
