I witnessed something yesterday, nothing short of a "miracle!"

As I was outside feeding the birds, I heard a faint sound far away in the distance. I shrugged it off thinking I was hearing things!

But the "sound" kept getting closer and closer. Louder and louder.
Could it be???!!! Heck no!! It can't be!!! We live way out in the sticks on a country road, it's not possible!!

Then it got so loud I could have sworn it was coming from the trail behind our home! I ran out into the road to make sure my ears weren't deceiving me.


It was a Mr. Softee ice cream truck!! Out here in the country!! I haven't heard that music in over 12 years!!
I was giddy with excitement!! But unfortunately a half hour prior, I had a giant bowl of ice cream. So I just waved "hello" to the gal driver as she drove by.

After seeing that, I smiled all day knowing little (and big) country kids could experience the fun of an ice cream truck.

I remember when we moved here. I joked how our precious Hannah would sit and look out the window with 75 cents on the window sill waiting for Mr. Softee to drive by to get a Nutty Buddy. But he never drove by.


If she was still here with us, I would have treated her to one.

So maybe my use of the word "miracle" was a little strong.

Happy Sunday!

Oh how fun. I don't live in the country but live in a small town and we never had an ice cream truck here. I used to love it when we would go to Milwaukee to visit my cousins and would hear their truck coming up the road...all those running, screaming laughing kids! No wonder no one ever got hurt! Good memories.
Be blessed,

we hear ours all summer long..but they don't come on our street.but the street behind us..I remember hearing it as a kid about a mile away and we would rush to get money from my dad and then proceed to stand in the road almost the middle of the you know they wouldn't miss us..oh the impatience that we didn't have and swearing that they were going to just drive by us...we used to scream at the top of our lungs: I scream you scream..we all scream for icecream.;)what fun memories.;)our dog that is in heaven now..he used to know the icecream truck too..and he would get a cone or something.0)

I've never lived in an area where there was an ice cream truck. I've seen them on the movies...does that count?

No ice cream truck ever, Peachy?! Say it isn't so!
Maybe it's a northern thing. Too hot in the south.
Kinda like how we don't have Moon Pies. Never had one. Might I add, I would thumb wrestle for one if I had the chance.
Cindi and Gina know exactly what I'm talking about when it comes to the excitement of hearing that truck!! Back in the day, the song that blared was "The Entertainer." :> )
