Testimony Booster

As you know, I'm feeling sick, tired, cold, etc. This morning when I parked my car near school, I parked behind someone on a steep hill. Since it's been snowing a lot recently, I happened to park my front wheel drive car on ice. Huge bummer. I tried for about 3 minutes turning my wheels this way and that way before I decided I really couldn't get out of that spot by myself. Mark was in class so I was alone. Not knowing what else to do I said a little prayer asking God to help me because I couldn't do it alone and I was getting frustrated and stressed out. No more than 30 seconds later, 2 boys walked up to my window and asked me if they could help. 3 minutes later and I'm still there, but another boy comes over offering to use his truck to pull me out. Unfortunately we didn't have any ropes or chains, but he still stuck around to help. 2 minutes after he showed up, I'm home free. None of them wanted a ride home so as I drove home I remembered God and his quickness to help me. I couldn't help but shed a few tears as I thought of how gracious He is.
I'm so grateful for my Savior and for His atonement. I know without a doubt that He is real. He loves me. As long as I am willing to receive His gifts, they are there for me. I thank my Heavenly Father for caring enough about me to send his Son so many years ago, and also for sending his sons to help me today.
