It’s Monday. I had plans. But my rearview mirror decided it was time to make the plunge.
I found it hanging on my car’s ceiling, unwilling to stick back on the windshield.
So I leave it be, and ask a friend to give me a ride.
My friend gladly said “Yes,” oh what joy!
But alas, her car gets a flat tire!
The culprit: a tiny screw lodged on the rubber wheel, so tiny but oh so powerful.
“Why oh why does this happen,” I silently lament, “on a Monday?”
Yet heaven smiles and bestows me a blessing: another ride, this time it’s all smooth sailing.
So, finally home,
I take a break and sit down to eat salmon, potatoes and a green salad.
Hungry and hot, I eat in haste and then I stop.
a time to pause –
breathe deeply and pray,
be thankful that all things are working out.
Miracles still abound,
and my unfinished salad is waiting to be savored, each bite
