|I am SO happy to have found this photo - with 5 men! :)|
(photo found on superstock.com)
First of all, Mindy and I realized that the battery wasn't working before we even entered the store because the doors wouldn't lock. I then checked the light, and it too stopped working. We figured that the battery must have died just after we parked and decided to just go ahead and shop and just ask someone for a jump start when we were ready to go.
This we did. On our way out the door, I asked the first person I saw. A man who came out of the door just behind me. He was happy to help out, and interestingly, he was parked RIGHT NEXT TO US! Yeah, I know. God really loves us! :D How convenient for us all!
The next cool little miracle came when after a few minutes of this kind man trying to charge our battery, another man came by and asked if he, too could help out. Of cours I was happy to let him help out! I told him what was happening, and he drove his car over close to mine and placed a second set of jumper cables on top of the first... just to speed things up for us. :D Yeah... that's what I thought! Pretty cool, eh?
By the way, how many men might have walked past and seeing that someone was already helping, would have kept on going? I'm not sure how many did that, but I do know this... FIVE men, DIDN'T walk on by! That's right. A few minutes later THREE MORE MEN came by to help us out. They asked if they could help, and I explained to them that the battery just wouldn't charge, and if they had any ideas of what could be causing this, they were welcome to help out, too. And they cheerfully did so!
All five of these men tinkered with the Suburban and put their heads together to figure out what the problem was, and they weren't about to leave until that Suburban started! :D Can I just tell you how much I enjoyed that?
I was totally "wow"ed! And I must tell you, it absolutely drove me batty that I still have NOT purchased as small compact camera to put in my purse for such occasions! :O I really wanted a photo of those wonderful men to place on my blog!!! And, just so you know... they would have let me do it, too. I asked if they minded if I blogged this, with a photo of them, and they all said "sure!" But alas, I had no camera.
If only I hadn't been so naughty this year, Santa may have brought me a camera for Christmas... but I"m sure to get coal instead! :O ~ Oh well! I won't let that stop me. ;) I've GOT to get a small camera to take places with me! :D
PS Anyone have any suggestions for a GOOD camera that fits into a purse? It has to take good clear photos. I've been spoiled by my Rebel XTI, so a crummy camera just won't do. It doesn't have to take long shots though... just close shots for moments like I had today for emergency photos which can be taken at no other time. Any suggestions would be appreciated. THANKS! :D
PPS I hope you all have awesome holiday miracles in your lives this year too! Let me know if you write about any; I would love to read about it! :D Thanks!
