Today we made it to Oklahoma City and it was a long day, but a great day indeed!
Yesterday was a milestone for Trinity hitting 50,000 miles. ——
Today I had the pleasure of meeting a gentleman who two years ago this past May had a rough patch in life.
He was way behind on bills and was struggling to feed his family.
They own a farm and crops had not been generating as much money as was needed to continue to put food on the table.
His best truck had just been repossessed, and his marriage was failing.
He tucked his two girls into bed and went out to the barn to fix one of the tractors.
He saw the shotgun that was kept in the tractor for coyotes and decided that his life insurance policy was the way to get enough money for his family to survive.
He thought about it for a bit, sat down in the tractor cab, put the barrel under his chin, and pulled the trigger.
Not even a click.
He said that he paused for a great while in the same position that he was in with the cold steel of the barrel pressing firmly against the underside of his chin.
After a bit, he got up, went inside and kissed his wife and girls again, and went to bed.
The next morning he grabbed the shotgun, pointed it at the side of the barn, and pulled the trigger.
The shotgun went off without any issues, peppering the side of the barn with holes from the buckshot.
Two days later, his grandfather passed away from natural causes and they received enough money to start climbing out of debt.
He said to me, “if I could tell the world one thing, it would be to never give up and to lean on one another in hard times.”
His story will forever resonate in my mind. ——
Comedy is needed in life, and a friend sent me this today. I found it worthy of sharing. ——
