I had such good intentions last week. There were a million things written on my to do list and I had every intention of getting them all done.
However, it didn’t happen due to circumstances beyond my control.
I spent most of last week and even some of this week dodging thunderstorms, hail, tornadoes, and power outages. I didn’t check off any of the things on my list, but I did get to do some things for the first time.
- Getting into an underground storm shelter with seven people and two dogs.
- Surviving a 20-hour power outage and playing cards with my husband by candlelight.
- Seeing BASEBALL sized hail. Don’t believe me? See for yourself…
There were a lot of people that had catastrophic damage to their homes and vehicles. My car was parked next to a friend’s car in a driveway. Her car had cracks all over the windshield, numerous dents and dings, and damage to both doors. My car looked like it barely got hit…just a few dings that are barely noticeable. Now remember, this is all with the baseball sized hail pictured above!
My only worry is part of a fence that fell down, which isn’t a big deal, when considering that some people don’t have a home to go to or a car to drive.
We are truly blessed and I’d rather walk in the blessings of God than stress about a completed to do list. Why should I worry and stress about things I can’t change or control?
When life throws a curve ball, I’m just going to go with the flow.
