It's Never Too Late To See The Elephants

It was a busy day last Friday. My closing was planned for 12:00PM and I was so happy for my friend that was selling her house in Richmond KY.

It was the second closing of a three house deal. Now that took some juggling for the deals and the three families involved. So far no unscheduled delays at all. 

Almost at the same time, the elephants were scheduled to arrive in Lexington KY with the Ringling Bros. Barnum Bailey Circus train. Once unloaded, they were going to be paraded around Triangle Park and fans would have a chance to get close to them.

I was daydreaming about elephants as the final papers were being signed, keys and garage door remote exchanged with the new buyers. I was so thrilled for my friend. Nice to get her house sold and now we could proceed with the closing on her new townhome. This would have to wait over the weekend. This last closing is not until Monday. Maybe next year, I will finally get pictures of the elephants... I thought.

Ringling Brothers Circus ElephantsThe next day, my friend was hanging out with me with me  downtown Lexington for the Farmer's Market.

We were driving by Rupp Arena and I commented that we had missed the circus elephants because we were at her closing the day before.

As I said the words, I looked past the building and I swear there were those elephants!

WOW!!! We quickly circled around and there they were calmly walking along holding on to each others tail in the parking lot.

Even though we were a day late, we didn't miss a thing. It was absolutely perfect timing! How wild is that??

Life is like that sometimes. You get what you need when the time is right.

Don't worry that you are missing out on anything. One day you get closings, the next...elephants.
