Last night I returned to the studio where I was going to do a re-shoot. Two fellow class-mates were waiting with me. No one ever showed up to unlock the lab. We ended up laughing and having a good time anyway. That was nice-ness #1. Nice-ness #2;
I walked to my car, got in, inserted key, turned it, nothing-
Long story short, I had my first dead battery.
Thank Goodness my grams has carried me on to her AAA account for the last umpteen years- free roadside assistance! Ricardo came, gave my car a jump, did a diagnostic test and confirmed my battery was the trouble maker.
As I drove home, a principle flashed through my mind: COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS DAWN!!!
Are you ever burdened with a load of care?
Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?
Count your many blessings, every doubt will fly,
And you will keep singing as the days go by.
So, amid the conflict whether great or small,
Do not be disheartened, God is over all;
Count your many blessings, angels will attend,
Help and comfort give you to your journey’s end.
So, I am thankful for:
My new car battery- and to my generous grammy for picking up the tab.
The great experience I had with Ricardo the AAA guy- got to give him a Joy to the World Pass-along card!
For having to leave campus early so I wouldn't have to wait for the tow truck late at night, in the dark, by myself-
For the Holy Ghost!
For Jamie Van Santen who's getting baptized on Sunday!!! :)
