The Fixer

This photo has nothing to do with what I am going to talk about, but sometimes things just sort of blend together whether you mean for them to or not.  We will see.  I have about 10 minutes to do a blog post and the only thing I could think of to talk about was what I just witnessed at the grocery store.  I was getting ready to head to the checkout lane and saw a lady carrying a little boy around maybe 3 years old and she was running to the Pharmacist to tell them she needed help.  It looked like the little boy was having a seizure possibly and had then passed out.  I wanted to run over to see if I could help.  Seriously.  I have no medical training.  What did I think I was going to do???  I have this character defect that fools even me... into thinking I can actually fix things for everyone.  My skills about almost everything are very limited, so I haven't a clue as to why I think I can actually help other people.  I would never have made a very good nurse or doctor nor good with emergency situations.  Or at least I don't think I would have.  I get way too emotional.  I observed how calm the Pharmacist was when responding to the lady with the little boy.  And I was so happy when I heard the emergency crew sirens coming into the grocery store parking lot, even before I got my groceries in the car.  They responded so quickly and I am already a little calmer knowing that he was going to get the best help he probably could have.  Whew....so glad that I do not have to deal with emergencies like that.
Now what does that story have to do with the photo above.  I think this time maybe a big nothing.  Just the first one I pulled off of the files from our trip to the gardens.
