They Needed Me As Much As I needed Them/Daily Prompt: Silver Linings

I was still injured but I needed a job.

I used to drive a “big rig”  but then I was hit,  by that bus.

I went through the savings which were sadly,  as in most case, s never enough.

I saw an Ad in a local paper for a Special Needs School Bus Driver,  surely I could drive a small van.

I applied for the position and they could clearly see my wounds but it was the ones inside that hurt the worst.
Due to my physical injuries I was given the troubled youths to transport to schools where they did not want to attend.

Many never even bothered  to get up and shower and dress for the day,  never mind step into the van.  Very sad.

One by one as they entered my school bus I introduced myself,  the one with the huge blue knee brace on.

I asked them to buckle up and not to swear (being a trucker at this point didn’t matter) I turned on music of their liking

just not gangster rap!

I knew they all had stories about how they ended up on a bus such as this.  I did too.

I showed them respect and demanded the same right back.  Friends were  worried about me alone with them.

So many scary stories you read about children such as this.  Remember they were the worst of the worst.

No one else at the bus company would drive them willingly.  So they gave them to the New Girl!

I had a run in the morning where they were still half asleep then again in the afternoon after no nicotine.

Yes some were angry.  Many had nice parents that just could not take it anymore and turned them over to the state.

Some lived with Grandparents God Bless them.

As the days turned into weeks and the weeks turned into years, two of them, I healed. So did they.  We stopped listening

to music unless it was them singing to my great-niece in an infant seat while one played the guitar.  They had

me to smile and make them feel welcomed each morning and I was their ride away from that school each day.

I had a solid group of eight who had been tossed aside.

Told they would never amount to anything.  Have you been mad enough to say that to your child?

They were so talented in so many ways, I was so proud they stuck it out and rode both ways with me.  I will always

remember these young people who not only graduated but in the end helped me to heal all the hurt inside.

They all know that they were MY SILVER LINING.

I Always Seem To FIGHT

The Daily Post Prompt Fight or Flight!

Looking back at my adult years for some reason I always rush in.

I never stop and take the time to see if there will be any danger in doing so.

Maybe it started in my home as a child and Dad pulling over to help stranded motorists or maybe all the years I was a Girl Scout.

I have met some wonderful people by stopping and asking “Can I help you?”

Some I didn’t have to ask because if I had not done something they would have died.   I could do with out worry and drama but it is who I am,  I recuse animals or people and yes there have been times I wish I had put more thought into it.

Daily Prompt: Say Your Name

My name is not one I would have chosen.  It is my Mother’s first name as well as her Mom’s.  Funny thing is when Dad met Mom she told him her name was Sandy!  So they are about to say their vows when the minister asks him if he will take Eunice, he blurts out who is THAT!  Guess he loved her and her name so much he bestowed it on me,  with his mom’s name for my middle one.  Neither fit who I think I really am but with that much love felt for names and the people who carried them before me,  I grew into them.
