I think the brevity of this piece works in your favor, leaving the reader with a hunger for more. This is such an enjoyable read! Good work!
This brought me back. I also lived in the country and spent time on bumpy dirt roads. My mom was a school bus driver too. I loved how you demonstrated that one can praise God anywhere--even during the bumpy ride in the back of the bus. This is an important message and I'm impressed you learned it at such a young age. You touched my heart for sure.
Nice trip down memory lane. I liked about singing to God inwardly. I am trying to get my 11 year old to see that prayers etc do not have to be out Loud.
Your story touched me deeply. It was big on emotions and long on importance of worship.

My heart lurched at the image of the little child pressing her face against the window as it passed your mom's burial place.

Thank you for sharing your journey with us, albeit brief in words, it served to really allow the reader to know you well by the close.

Well done!

God bless~
This piece had a strong message, wrapped within some beautiful memories, and all in a short piece. I agree with Sheldon; I felt the brevity worked well. Thank you for sharing.
I was reminded of one of the many schools I attended, that we were the first on the bus and the last off, just like you. I never knew God then, but so glad you did to help you through those tough times. Thanks for sharing your story. It touched my heart. Blessings, LaVonne
Your story was a beautiful witness to the fact that we can worship God anywhere. I could see your "little-girl self" so plainly.
Congratulations :)
Congratulations! This was such a tender read.

God bless~
