A few days ago, I was walking Maggie to the bus.
I usually don't walk the kids to the bus because they have each other. This year, however, Lilli is in choir. I get the opportunity to take her to school early once a week, which means Maggie is forced to walk to the bus alone! Yeah right, I would be worrying for hours if I didn't see her get on the bus. Hence, I was walking Maggie to the bus.....
After I kissed her good-bye, and she got on the bus, I was walking slowly home. ( I should mention the younger two were still at home sleeping)(Also, the bus stops on a main road)
Okay, back to the story.....
As I was walking slowly home, facing traffic, a car came up on me from behind, sort of weirdly. It slowed down as it got closer to me, but it kept going, and the male driver kept looking in his rear view mirror as he passed.
I heard a loud, forcefully yell in my head......RUN!!! NOW!!!
As I started to run, I saw the car turn down the next street, as though it was going to come up my street, to be off the main road and easier to pull right up to me.
I didn't give myself a chance to find out what was really going to be the outcome. I RAN as fast as could, faster than I have in a LONG time....all the way home, into my house, and locked the door behind me.
I went to the living room and fell to my knees.
In tears I thanked the Lord for the Holy Ghost! I am so thankful that I have this wonderful gift!
And I am so Thankful that my daughters will all be blessed with this wonderful gift in this terrible, and only getting worst world!
How blessed are we all that we belong to The Church of Jesus christ of Letter Day Saints!

You know, examples like this are why I own guns, and you should take one of the smaller ones when you go to the bus!
I love you.
