Random Acquaintances

Recently found myself in a situation to need to get 40 miles to my car. My shoes really weren't meant for walking, so I knew I'd have to hitchhike part of the trip. What I loved were the random meetings and subsequent conversations. A bible study teacher, a man just finishing up at 12 hr shift, and another guy off to go rafting for the day. It was fun, bouyed my spirits, and gave me faith in the world that there are good people who were willing to help me out just when I really needed it. Could it have gone bad? Yes, if I didn't have a gift for reading people. As it is, I am blessed and loved everyone of my random acquaintances.
