We had a willy dilly of a storm last night and when that special bolt of lightning and crack of thunder struck at 4 AM, everything went black.
My poor son had to get up right then for work and shower and get ready by the light of a dying flashlight. What did I do to help? Absolutely nothing. I laid my head back down and went to sleep. The guilt…it eats at me…as I sleep.
I am ill prepared for emergencies and ill equipped to get prepared.
Every time the power goes out, I say to myself that we’ve got to have some kind of readiness kit for these situations. Then the power comes back on and it just doesn’t matter anymore.
I’m such a victim.
