I drove to work today on heavily salted roads. The last two days they predicted freezing rain and snow that never materialized. There must a million gallons of brine on the roads. So much that I think I can taste it. I honestly think the air is slightly sweeter today than it was just twenty-four hours ago.
I know this isn’t true but sometimes your mind just fills in the cracks.
That sweetness is like missing a loved one who is gone. While things were not always great, sometimes many months would go by without even a single word passed between, the sweetness rises to the top.
That is what I am choosing to look at, the sweetness of life.
Today I’m taking the grime of the road to remind myself that life is sweet. It is all about perspective.
