As I drove past farm fields on Andrew’s favorite road I noticed the vividly blue sky. Is the sky really that blue? I thought and lowered my sunglasses to look yep, it is. Then the colors of the green trees and the brown farm fields struck me. How grateful I am that this is a color-filled world I thought as I noticed the yellow and white lines on the road, and purple irises growing in someone’s yard. How can it get more beautiful than this, Lord? I thought.
My car turned onto K-7 and the speed limit said 65 so I stepped on the gas. How happy I am to drive fast! I thought, then tears of gratitude welled up in my eyes and rolled down my checks. I thought about the kindness given to me from my family, friends, and the Lord over the last seven years since having MS and felt grateful. Words to the song playing in my car made me feel more grateful and again emotion filled my heart and more tears rolled down my cheeks. All I could think of was thank you. Tender feelings are in my heart. I am blessed, very blessed.
