Snow Mowing (page 2)
It must have been a few minutes before I looked out the window to check on the boys again and noticed John was gone. I was very distraught, running all around the yard, searching desperately for my little boy.
Fortunately, my distress did not last long. Shortly after I started searching, a mechanic from the corner garage came by our house --- carrying a little boy and a toy mower. "Is this little guy yours?" he asked. "I found him on the county road heading north out of town! You should keep better watch over your kids!”
I felt about an inch high, and knew I was the worst mother in the world, but I didn’t care.
I was almost hysterical with relief that John was safe and sound and back home again.
