As I said in my last post, the weather today was freezing! The roads are covered with ice. I was driving down the road and came upon a a suburban stuck in a huge pile of snow. Two men had stopped already and were trying to get her out. They were using their hands. In our van we had two little shovels for this very purpose. They used those for a while, but the suburban was completely stuck. My dad drove past on his way home and asked if anyone had a tow rope, since he had a tow-thingy on the back of his SUV. Well, well, well...I had a tow rope, too! We saved this poor, helpless, embarrassed teenage girl and sent her on her way. I had one of those moments, a eureka moment: we're asked to be prepared. Too often, I think it's just for me, or my family. Yet more often, our "preparedness" is for others...not ourselves. Life's not always about us, is it?
