How Cool Is This?

Something very cool happened to me last week and I just wanted to share it with my blogworld friends. My mother lives in Oregon so I don't get to see her as often as I would like. It has been almost two years since we have been together. A few weeks ago she called to tell me that she was taking a trip to Missouri with a friend and they were going to "swing by" and see me on the way. Y'all, Texas is not on the way from Oregon to Missouri. I love my mother and would have loved to see her, but I could not let her spend her entire trip driving, so I told her to look at her atlas and assured her that I would not be offended if she opted out of this twenty hour side trip. We were both sad but made plans to get together at Thanksgiving.
Last Tuesday, coming back from North Platte, we got stopped at Oakley Kansas. A truck was jackknifed on the overpass and kept traffic backed up for over two hours. To break up the monotony of the wait, I decided to use my cell phone and call my mom. She answered the phone with her usual, "hi honey" and I asked where she was---imagine my surprise when she said "Oakley Kansas"!!!!! They had decided they would return on I-70 rather than I-80 just to see new sights! So, we pulled off and spent a wonderful two hours together. How cool is that? God is good all of the time---and I must truly be His favorite child!!!!

God's timing is always right. While you took your mother into consideration, He took you into His. Beautiful.

Neva left out the best part of the story, well maybe the second maybe third best part of the story. We are driving to the restaurant to meet Nancy, whom I love, and Neva is just chattering away about how cool this is and how she may not recognize her mother, whom I love, because she had let her hair go to its natural color, gray. Being the ever positive, ever helpful husband I said we would recognize her by broom she'd be riding. I love you mom. Tell her to stop hitting me!
