Someday I won’t be able to drive, today is NOT that day!
I lock my keys in my car typically every other month or so and of course it is always when I’m in a desperate rush to accomplish some important task. I was bumming pretty hard when it happened today. A couple hours later I was thinking about how tired I am not only of locking myself out of my car, but of driving in general. I love driving when I can go exceptionally fast, but have grown weary of the constant around town errands and taxi service driving. That pity party was cut real short when I remembered how upset my Gramps was when he was no longer able to drive himself and how broken hearted I was for him. There are a multitude of reason that I should be overflowing with gratitude that I am able to drive (and that I have a reliable vehicle). “Always show appreciation. What’s taken for granted will eventually be taken away. Then you end up missing most what you least appreciated.” Author Unknown.
Today was a good lesson!
