A Simple Wish
I couldn't find the toddler car I wanted to get my grandson but my time was up and I had to go on the journey to his birthday. I needed to pick an item in Chicago so I headed east.
I was traveling down the endless road on I-70 East in Missouri just 50 miles from Saint Louis when I made a simple wish.
"I wish I could have found a little play car for my grandson Denver."
With that spoken thought an invisible hand grabbed the top of my head and turned my field of vision to the left. On an outer road running beside I-70 West was a thrift store with an orange and yellow toddler play car sitting in the parking lot.
I turned at the next exit and bought the tiny ride in foot powered car.
A day before my grandson's birthday party I gave him his first used car. In a house in Bloomington Minnesota , a grandfather pushed a little foot powered car around with his grandson.The two bonded with that little car.
When the play time was over Denver was held in his Grandfather Vollrath's arms.
The little boy kissed his grandfather twice on the cheek and put his head on the old man's shoulder.
"Thanks the powers that be for a simple wish granted."
