The Big Little Red Truck

This is Digby Pancake.  What is a big deal in your life?  You know what I like!  Mealtime is anytime for me.

And yesterday, when our red truck finally arrived from that Arizona place, we were relieved.  We were happy that we can start traveling again soon and that we can pull our Big Barking Biscuit Buggy.

It took a long time to find one, and she is a beauty.

But as the persons checked her over, and took a look, we all wondered.  This big red truck was actually a very little part of the good things in our day. Yes.  I said little.

Sure. This big red truck was something to be appreciated.

This big red truck was something that will enable us to spend more time together.

But in actuality, it is a big little red truck  Because when we start to put too much value in things, well, we lose sight of the truly important things.

We also never want to be showy  We never want someone to feel bad about what they have.  Because looking at our yellow car next to the Big Little Red Truck made us think.  

They both serve a purpose.  They both should be appreciated.  They both enable our family to be together on the road.

One is not better than the other.  It just is a tool to our lives.

We all work hard for what we have.

But what we have does not define who we are. What we have can change in an instant.  We know that for sure. And the individuals in our lives can change.  I can guarantee when that happens, a car won’t matter at all.

So Big Little Red Truck?  Welcome to our family.  We are so glad you are here. We know our adventures together will be many.

And while we have you, we will take care of you.  Appreciate you.  And let’s help others to remember the real big things in their lives.

Girl Person says when you look back on memories, very rarely do you remember the things.

She said when her Granny taught her how to drive, she has no idea what car they were in.  She only remembers her Granny.  So know your value. Know your loved ones’ values.

Don’t drive thru your life looking in the rear view mirror and wondering if you expressed your love to others enough.

Love who can love you back.
