Red Truck Angel

by Christine Overberg

I was driving home one Mother's Day from Oklahoma City to Dallas. About half way a heavy storm developed in early afternoon. The sky was literally black with low clouds and torrential rain. There was no shoulder on the road, so I had to keep driving--and praying. Visibility was zero. Suddenly some lights appeared in front of me--a little red truck.

For what seemed forever, 30 min to an hour, I stayed right behind that truck until we broke out of the storm into daylight. I tried to find him and catch up to wave my thanks, but he had disappeared, and I never saw him again on the road ahead.

I will never forget my Red Truck Angel!
