The Otis Van

Okay, I know you're wondering why I would dedicate an entire post to this white van. Well, if you're a family member, you know exactly why. But, for my blogging friends let me explain. We were at the mall last week doing a little holiday browsing. When we left this van was the first thing I saw in the parking lot and it just warmed my heart. My grandfather, Otis, passed away in May 2005. I was extremely close to him and miss him deeply. Now, any time I step onto an elevator or escalator and see "Otis" (the manufacturer) I just smile. However, seeing his name boldly emblazoned on the side of a vehicle just gave me chills. I know it was just coincidence, but what are the odds? There were hundreds and hundreds of cars in the huge parking lot. This one just happened to park a few spaces down from ours. Thanks Otis repairman. Thanks for picking the parking space you did. It started my holiday season off wonderfully.

  1. I think your Papaw was saying Happy Thanksgiving, Shane. That surely is a big sign.
