Normally a day of rainstorms, flooding, detours, and a lengthy commute wouldn't belong on this blog...it's hard to come up with anything extraordinarily wonderful about being parked on the freeway! (DO YOU SEE THAT SPEEDOMETER?) But my car time became a mental exercise in mindfulness.
I was thankful for a car with no leaks - no duct tape anywhere, and good tires. And it's paid for - how good is that?! And Rain-X. Love the stuff.
And I shot up a million prayers for friends who are struggling with kids, cancer, financial issues, life... my commute issues suddenly became smaller. Funny how a little gratitude can change things!
