Little Girl had a Grammy who loved her dearly. She loved to visit her Grammy and play outside with the red wagon.
Grammy lived close to the highway, and her driveway was not very far from that highway.
Grammy would tell her little granddaughter not to go near the highway with the red wagon. At first, Little Girl listened. But soon she got carried away with all the fun she was having and walked closer and closer to the highway.
What was Grammy to do? She thought and thought about it and then decided to teach Little Girl why she shouldn't go near the highway.
So Grammy took Little Girl's hand and together they walked to the end of the driveway, up to the very edge of the highway. Little Girl held tight onto her Grammy's hand. Grammy began to explain why she shouldn't go near the highway. Grammy explained that there were lots of cars and big trucks on the highway, and that Little Girl could get hurt very badly if she wandered out into traffic.
Grammy stood by the road with Little Girl for several minutes, letting her feel the power of the machines as they went by. Then Grammy led Little Girl back down the driveway to the house.
Little Girl never went near the highway again.
Thank you Grammy for loving me enough to take the time to teach me a lesson. And making me realize that I never wanted to be a truck driver. Ever. :D
