But suddenly, people see the value of being the grasshopper prepping for winter (or whatever that little creature was in Aesop's fable). Suddenly, "preparedness" makes sense. And no, my family's not perfectly prepared (can anyone be?). But I am trying.
So that's why I'm making lists and checking them twice. Lists like these desires of mine:
- plant fruit trees in the spring
- learn to use herbs for health
- gather important papers into one location
- teach children emergency skills, such as CPR and first aid
- set up a ham radio system
- learn Morse code
So yes, I'm making lists, checking them twice, and then working to accomplish each item. It may take me years, but then the legacy I leave my children will be a priceless one (and they will have learned safety for the "winters" in their lives).
