At church we are told to be prepared in case of an emergency. My first step towards this goal was getting an Emergency Car Kit. I bought it a few years ago. As you can see it has a first aid kit, a tool kit. It also has jumper cables, a fleece blanket, a flash light, rope and lots more. If anything ever happened while I was in the car... I would be set. It puts me at ease when I am driving anywhere.
I have been told for years that I should have food storage. It is not that I don't agree... I just didn't want to start it until I got married. Not sure why, its not like I am immune to emergencies until I am married. Maybe it was just an excuse. Maybe I just didn't want to carry it around from move to move. Well, I am happy to report that on Saturday, I started my food storage. They ask us to have 3 gallons of water. I now have 15. I now have a huge container of rice, one of beans and one of flour. Plus that I got dry milk, and many cans of different things. When I went to stake conference and they talked about emergency preparedness, I did NOT feel guilty! Hooray! I finally did it. I must give a big thank you to my sister Kristy for taking me with her to the store and helping me get started. See that empty shelf on the bottom? Next Kristy is going to teach me how to can foods! That will go there... and I will continue to build up my food storage, which will be a lot easier now that I have started. Do I feel more at ease in case anything ever happens? Yes, yes I do!
