The Life of Bon: A Pancake Miracle

A Pancake Miracle

Every once in a while something happens that lets me know I'm living right.

Take this morning for example.  We were out of milk.  This presents a problem to me because every morning I have a glass of Instant Breakfast on my way to work.  No milk= No Instant Breakfast= No food until noon.

Because I wake up approximately 15 minutes before I have to leave my house, I never have time to have a real breakfast.  In a competition between sleep and food, sleep wins every time.

All of this means that today I was driving to school with the prospect of absolutely nothing to eat all morning.  Could I teach three classes on an empty stomach?  In a stroke of brililance, I remembered the cafeteria serves breakfast- I would head on down and pick up some gross cafeteria food there.

But then I discovered that I had no cash. 

My mind raced.  Get the lunch ladies to give me breakfast and I would pay them back later?  It didn't seem likely (those lunch ladies are sticklers!) but what other options did I have at this point?

And thus I was in route to attempt to convince the lunch ladies to give me a cinnamon roll on credit when I heard this annoucement,

"Attention students.  Student Government is giving out free pancakes this morning out by the student parking lot.  Make sure to go and get your free breakfast."

It was a pancake miracle!

So I headed on down to the breakfast table, loaded up, and am now currently eating the flapjacks as I write this post.  And you know what?  They ain't half bad.

I guess sometimes God does little things like that just to let you know He's watching out for you.

Don't judge my hair.  It's early.

P.S.  I am an idiot and never announced winners for this giveaway.  The entries are low so I've decided to extend it until Saturday at noon.  You've got a great chance of winning so hop on over there already!
