Sometimes I pray in the car. Actually, I do it a lot. Usually when I'm commuting to work. It seems that in my haste to get ready and get out the door in time, I forget to say my prayers. I'm positive that anyone who can see me must think I'm crazy, because clearly my lips are moving, and there's no one beside me. Sometimes it's necessary for me to just turn off the radio and listen to my thoughts. Don't get me wrong, I love listening to music while I drive, but driving seems to be one of the only times I am by myself alone with my thoughts. It's these times that I really start to think about the things I'm grateful for. These are the things I'm grateful for today:
A new day.
My talents and abilities.
The people who love me and show an interest in my life.
A healthy and happy baby, even if he won't take naps.
A sound mind, and an interest for intellect.
A knowledge of life beyond this one.
A healthy marriage.
Determination and the power to change.
This song is SO touching. It gives me the chills every single time I listen to it. It sums up how I feel when I listen to my thoughts in the car.
Maybe that's because the local musician (Peter Breinholt) wrote it after an experience he had driving to work one day. You can read the lyrics here.
