I tend to be a distracted driver. I’m a day-dreamer. I often try to drink coffee or eat as I drive. I usually am running late. Still, for all the things that are distracting me, there is this one thought I keep anchoring my awareness back to. (Insert big calming breath here.) Drive through town as if the future depends on it. Because those little people are.
And a helpful reminder: it is illegal to pass a schoolbus when it’s lights are flashing.
