A funny thing happened to me last Friday, on the way to school. After my ride came to pick me up, I waved good bye to my father who was at the door and climbed into the car. We started talking as soon as I got in and started up the street.
Out of habit I looked down at my feet and made sure I had my purse. I then looked at the books I brought and made sure I had the right ones. Then I realized my biggest fear had come to life...I had forgotten my lunch!
Thankfully, we were still on my street when I realized this. So we turned the car around and headed back to my house. All of the sudden I saw a very familliar van riding towards us. A frightening thing for sure. I almost thought I wouldn't be going to school after all, but instead, meeting my Creator. Yes, I am embellishing but stay with me.
Rushing toward us, driving like a maniac, still in the t-shirt he had slept in, was my father. He was waving my lunch out the window. I couldn't stop my smile as he pulled up next to us and handed me my lunch. After I caught my breath from laughing so hard, I thanked my dad for risking his life for my lunch!
BUT...between you and me, I think he was a tad bit disapointed that we had turned around. I think he wanted to chase us all the way to school!
