The rain is coming down hard today, supposed to change to sleet by the time we school bus drivers have to bring other people’s most valued possessions home – their children.
This is a responsibility I feel keenly as a mother myself.
Today has been crazy, not only for the weather, but for the less-than-intelligent drivers whom I have encountered on the road today. Two ran my red stop signs as I was picking up children. Thank God that the children were same side pickups, although I have heard of drivers impatient enough and stupid enough to run around a school bus on the right.
This is one of the reasons I pray daily, and several times a day. My prayer?
Creator, make me a safe driver today, for my passengers, my self, my bus, and all other beings around us on the road.
Prayer has daily and several times daily applications. Prayer meets my needs, it serves others when I pray for their needs, and it brings me closer to my Gods.
