Oh yeah, it's big out there!
Tonight I was grilling my chicken outside on our fun new deck, and the crazy next door neighbor (they do drugs... I swear!), yells "HEY COURTNEY" so I yell my hello and behind my sunglasses watch her get in to her car while her 4 year old is in the driveway and back out. My judgemental self... is like, what the hell is she doing? But then I realize that she is JUST moving the car so the kid can ride his bike in the safety zone and not in the street. So, after I told God I was sorry for judging, I remembered what it was like when my dad would move the cars out of the driveway. It seemed SO BIG! I had so much room to skate (w/ 4 wheels, of course), ride my bike, play basketball... I was so small. And although at that time my world was as small as it will ever be that I can remember... it seemed freakin HUGE! My perspective has changed so much over my almost 28 years of life. The driveway is no longer big to me. Its just a place I drive to park my car. The world is my place now, my job, my church, my starbucks! There is so much out there past the driveway.
