Love the humor about the sign! Good job! Also loved how you presented the holidays as such a cherished family time!

It's interesting how God woke Ben up so he could drive more safely, and also woke him up to see there are things more important than money. Good lessons!
My brother is a truck driver and I know there are laws prohibiting truckers from driving so many hours in a row. But I also know that by manipulating the paperwork some truckers do drive straight through making it dangerous for them and everyone on the road. I enjoyed your story and the message in it. You did a good job showing how our desires aren't always the best thing for us as well as showing the great ways God answers prayers.

great story :-) i would have liked to know a little MORE about his family rather than just his wife as you mention them in general lots of times but i guess that you needed to be mindful of the word count. i think this story reminds us to focus on the really important things in life

I like the story and how Ben kept praying for his safe arrival throughout his journey home. The Lord answers his prayer by allowing him to notice the sign by jolting him into wakefulness until he reaches home to a praying family. On that journey home he is also made aware that family and love are more important than money.
