The prompt for today is “sign.” It would have been easy to write about signs I have received in my walk with God. So I decided to share one of my “areas of opportunity.” Blessings!
//One might describe me as directionally challenged. Okay, I just heard my husband laugh. Yes, I admit it. Road signs and I don’t mesh. I remember one of my first times driving from Houston to Dallas on I45, I was told to look for the BIG sign which said exit for DFW airport. I saw it but figured there would be another exit after this one for those of us who were cautious in taking the first exit seen.
Driving to my parents’ house in Brenham from Grapevine Texas was always a story in the making. Dad would generally ask me “Which way did you take this time?” I was not lost, but chose a different scenic route each trip and guess what? I always made it to their doorstep.
Not sure why I don’t do well with street signs either. It is best to give me the visual landmarks such as “turn right at the McDonald’s and make a left once you pass the big purple shrub.” I can guarantee I will be there pronto with no turnarounds.
I am so thankful for the legal U-turns. Generally, there is a U-turn in most of my daily trips. Inevitably, I pass up where I need to go and need to work my way back to my destination. You know what? There must be a lot more of us out there who drive similar, otherwise, why would they make so many legal U-turn options? Things that make you go HMMMMMMM!//
