16 miles to work and it took over an hour to get here this morning. I’m stuck in traffic, constantly cursing the fact that I only moved one or two car lengths every few minutes. Eventually I was detoured by police and the back roads were just as full with people not knowing where they were going and thus driving 6 or 7 MPH. Add onto this that I forgot my coffee and that I was awoken by my daughter 30 minutes before the alarm went off and couldn’t get back to sleep, and I was cranky.
I shouldn’t be.
Sitting in traffic for an hour is nothing compared to the agony that little girl is going through nor the panic that surely must have gone through her parents’ minds. Sometimes, when you’re pissed off at the world, it helps to have a bit of perspective.
Prayers go out to the little girl and her family.
