Last week Kelly went to leave for work and had a flat tire! After struggling with the wedged-on tire, and ruining his shirt...he decided to follow my advice and just take the van that day! The kids and I walked to the park and were fine with no car for a day. At about 4:30 Kelly called me from the side of the road...the transmission had DIED and he was stranded. WOW, bad day for Kelly, and it seemed like a horrible thing had just happened! But as I thought about it more, it really was a blessing that Kelly had taken the van that day and not me and 3 kids!! What would I have done if I were the one stranded on the side of the road??! We all know how often I DON"T carry my cell phone with me...and even if I would have had it, who would I have called? I would have been at the mercy of strangers!! As it was, Kelly had his nifty phone+internet-thingy and was able to call a tow truck, a transmission place, me, Logan, etc. So I am grateful for the flat tire that made Kelly take the van that died on the side of the road...and for other small miracles that happen every day!
