Show and Tell Thursday. I'm showing my keys.

I always hang my keys with a little clip on my purse or I lose them. I have my automatic car locky thing, my work key, my house key, and the car key. I also have the little black ambu sac in case I ever have to give someone CPR. (It's a little plastic mouth guard so that you don't get germs or other icky stuff in your own mouth when giving mouth to mouth.) I know that because I am prepared, I will never have to use it. That is the whole concept of life insurance as well. If you have it, you won't need it. It's when you are not prepared that you find you will need something.

For example:
Going on a quick errand. Leave the wallet at home and pass a fabulous garage sale.
Take it with you, NOTHING!

Pack everyone a water bottle for soccer, cold and rainy. Forget the bottles? 95 degrees.

Clean out the purse, run out the door, and the Time of the Month shows up. NOTHING. On the other hand, I've had the same couple of tubes bouncing around the bottom of my purse and never have needed them. Preparation!

The one exception. Last month my youngest daughter started having a fever when we went shopping "in the big city". We were far from home and I know she usually throws up with a fever. I think I can prevent this. I run into the store to buy a big three-pack of glad ware. I am prepared, we won't need it.

Boy, am I GLAD I bought that glad ware.
