So, this happened last week....one (very strong) gust of wind and our patio canopy flipped over. Fortunately, if there is a fortunate side, a length of rope stopped it from flying through the neighborhood. It was really a strange sight!! So, we planned on having two or three guys, plus my husband, wrangle it right side up and return it to the patio. At around the appointed time we got a knock on the door, welcomed one of the men that was going to help, and, to our surprise, he told us it was all fixed, right side up, on the patio, tied down again! What????? By himself??? With no help??? Yes. All by himself.
Isn't that sometimes like life?? We experience something that seems insurmountable to fix except for a lot of effort, which also seems beyond our individual reach, and then someone is placed in our path that says, "No problem, sure I can do that," and then they do exactly that. I am still amazed that he was able to do that by himself. But he did and we are very grateful to Palmer who performed this miracle!!
Never underestimate the power of ONE! And I hope that someday we can all be that ONE that makes a difference in someone's life!
