They have been doing some work on the road in the complex we live in. Today they were seal coating the side right next to our home. My mom had voice therapy, so we were trying to figure out how that was going to work. I had parked the car outside of the complex in preparation, but the place is surrounded by a fence and there are no walkways leading to the outside. Luckily, we were able to sneak out of the house just in the nick of time. The workers had already spread some tar into some cracks, so we had to watch our step, but we were able to make our way to a place where I could pick up my mom with the car. Evidently, they came by right after we left and sprayed the seal coat. We had lots of time before my mom’s appointment, so we decided to go to the mall and see if we could find her some new shoes that don’t hurt her feet. We did buy a pair and are hoping they work out. By the time we got back to the car, there was barely enough time to eat lunch before the appointment. I had spotted a Sonic nearby and commented that we could go there. I haven’t been to one and I thought it would be fun. We pulled in and placed our order. The food was delivered by a roller skating young man and I did enjoy the experience. I thanked my mom for indulging me. At the voice therapy, we had a great conversation with the therapist who taught us a lot about Parkinson’s that we did not know. And my mom had to tell another joke. It was hysterical as she got to the punch line again and mixed it up even though she was reading it from a paper. Once we left there, we decided to use up some more time, so we went to the Christian bookstore. We looked around and found a couple of things. After that, my mom was done so we made our way back home. The seal coat was dry by this time, so we were able to get back over it with little problem. It was very enjoyable spending an impromptu day with my mom.
I Found God today in an unexpected day spend with my mom.
