Sunday School Lessons
I spent a wonderful Sunday in my own ward for conference. We have the best people in our ward. I am also very grateful to be home safely from Boise. Maria and I had a great time until I ran out of gas on the freeway in the middle of nowhere. It had to be one of the most humiliating moments in my life. I never run out of gas. I guess we were so excited about all the cool things we saw at the Miche Bag meeting that I didn't even think about filling up. After sitting in the car and laughing for a few minutes, I used my cell phone to google towing companies in Rupert and was able to call a very nice man who came out and brought gasoline to us, for a price of course. Just a note, try not to get stranded in the middle of nowhere, it's very expensive. And time consuming. And inconvenient. But I loved Maria's outlook. She explained that it could have been a lot worse. It could have been at night, in a snow storm. She is right of course. Everything happens for a reason. Maybe I needed to learn to check the gas gauge more often so it will never happen again and leave me stranded in a more inconvenient or even dangerous situation. And believe me, I have learned my lesson.
