So yesterday I was so excited to finally have a day to myself and feel free to do whatever I wanted! I decided to go to Walmart to get some much needed grocery shopping done. After quite a while of trying to decide what to get and such, I took my groceries out to my car to put them in and drive safely home. While feeling the torturous heat I decided that it might be a good idea to turn the car on while I load up the groceries. So, feeling smart as ever, I reached into the car and pushed the "unlock" button to unlock all the doors, reached in and put the keys in the ignition. Come to find out, as I tried to open the back door to put my groceries in, I had accidentally hit the button the "lock" direction and locked my keys in the car with the car on! Feeling frantic, I ended up calling the police and after two calls of trying to be patched through to dispatch, a police car was called to come save me. In the meantime, I waited and waited in the smoldering heat with my rotting groceries by my car. Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse than being seven months pregnant, stuck in the heat, waiting for a cop car with my car slowly running out of gas and my groceries rotting, low and behold it starts to RAIN!!!! Now, what are the chances of it raining near the end of JULY?!?! Well, I guess that's what I get for living in Utah, but still, It seemed quite unlikely. So after becoming soaked in the rain, my groceries dripping wet, and low spirits, a little more than an hour after I had called the police station, a police man shows up, unlocks my freezing empty car and I load up my soaking groceries and head on home.
It is experiences like these that allow me to step back and realize that God FOR SURE has a sense of humor! Even though I really wanted to cry while going through that, I still got a really good laugh, and learned a great lesson to next time, be a little bit more careful when doing such a simple deed as loading up groceries. I'm sure that every time I do, I will think of the rainy day in July and get a good laugh. :)
