What did I do to prep this week?

What did I do to prep this week?

By Bev Sandlin, Executive Editor


Actually, not a darn thing.

I had several “challenges” come up this week. AND it was our first full week of sunshine in I don’t know how long… Fillmore County is a Federal Disaster Area due to incessant rains and flooding – Bridges and roads just washed away, besides homes and parks.

My activities have focused on Weeding, Weeding, Weeding! The food garden and the flowers. Using and putting back strawberries. Cleaning out the rabbit and pigeons runs. And doing other not so savory, but important tasks.

Just Bev’s point of view, but preparedness is not just looking ahead and putting by, but also taking care of today. [Absolutely right Bev!!! – Rourke]  Does weeding your garden qualify, if you get a better crop? — I have had years where the summer got away from me and the garden was strangled by weeds, so… I don’t know.

But I do think that the most important thing anyone can do is to take care of today. All any one of us has is today. Don from Iowa made me think of that, in my heart. What if… A tornado? An earthquake? Flood? Rocked my world? Well, I’ve been through flood and fire and divorce and job loss and strokes and a devastating car accident and it seems like everything… Today is all we have, truly. We can prepare for physical needs, but we also need to prepare for…

And then there was Independence Day this week! A celebration of a new Nation, Our Nation, The United States of America! And as I listened to the video that Rourke put up, I thought, “What would Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and George Washington think now?” Congress in deadlock with sequesters, illegal aliens being given a pass… And I thought about Harold’s Chronicles and the border that divides North and South Korea – they keep that with no problem. And our border with Mexico? But, I don’t know anything and the politicians seem to know everything.

Okay Patriots, what did YOU do this week to prepare?


A smile for you…
