I am so seriously friggin grateful for some of the bad luck I have had that ends up being good luck. Last week it was a screw in my tire on a very busy day that ending up being just fine because friends with Lumby Tirecraft took me right away and a flat was averted.
Today a took a bad turn and caught some icy and the hard snow I was on dropped off and half the truck slid down the bank dropping into the ditch. It was just enough of a slant I was afraid the truck was going to tip over so I was in the process of getting the boys out and getting into 4 wheel drive and ready to do some of my famous Dukes of Hazzard driving moves when someone stopped. It was the local Shaw guy...the guy who came in the summer and helped me fix my table leg and gave me lots of tips on my new neighbourhood. I had ridden my him on my bike several times this summer and luckily he remembered me. He hopped into the truck and did some wild deep snow driving and my beloved Pilot gave it his all and plowed through the snow till the next driveway where my helper was able to pull out of the ditch. YES!!!! What might have been a stupid, embarrassing tow truck call with a tipped over truck was just a close call.
I AM grateful!!!
My weekend in away from home at the Kelowna Christmas Show was exhausting but amazing. Such nice energy and inspiring folks. These little bad luck into good luck flips have been such a nice wake up about my attitude and how much I have to be grateful for moving into the Christmas season.
THANK YOU life & friends
p.s. If anyone knows what Paul the cable guy drinks lemme know because I owe him a bottle after his help yet again and he is also coming to help me with cable this week...so it will actually be the third time he came to my rescue.
