I tend not to be the ‘out of sight, out of mind’ type. I’m more inclined to imagine how something bad could happen and what needs to be done ahead of time, or in the moment, to avoid it.
So, when a beloved elder of the family drove 300 miles round-trip to attend a funeral, all in just over 24 hours, and there was cold weather and rain at dusk in the forecast for the return trip, I tried to call to suggest staying overnight and returning on a sunny day.
My calls and texts did not get through, but my loved one returned home safe and sound and looking wonderful. 🙂 For this, I am immensely grateful.
