What doesn't kill you makes you stronger

              So I've wanted to go to Kohls this week and it's been a challenge to get there.  Yesterday, it started hailing as we were in route to get there, so we turned around and went back home.  Today, we loaded up to go and the battery on my van was dead.  After some help from the jumper cables and my dad, we did make it to Kohls but the battery was dead again.  We are now in the process of getting a new battery.
             This minor obstacle was truly a blessing with God's timing and protection wrapped up in it.  We have plans for every day after today that included the use of the van.  We are all thankful for the obstacle to be close to home and easily fixable.
             We also had a desire for snowcones today.  We thought all would be okay as long as we kept the van running.  Well apparently the battery was running lower than we expected.  While Karla was in line getting our snowcones, my air machine, that runs off the battery, shut off.  It is one of my worst fears to have the mask on and no air.  I panicked but then it came back on...whew.  I got Karla's attention, we switched machines and we got our snowcones.  Hey, we came for snowcones and we weren't leaving without them.. ha.
