I was driving my mom home from a daunting chemotherapy session. I was a novice at to the whole driving experience, and not fond of what chemotherapy was doing to her either. My knuckles were white on the wheel. She touched my hand and said, "You have no idea what it's like to know you may never be able to drive down a road like this and look at such beautiful trees again." I suppose I didn't.
Driving home from my cross country hotel tour today, I watched the breathtaking landscape pass me by. I thought about what she said to me as I drank up the scenery... and I thought to myself, "what a wonderful world."
