Most everyone is familiar with the Aesop's Fable of "The Ant and the Grasshopper" where the grasshopper had fun and played the summer away while the ants worked dilligently to put away food for the cold winter months to come. When winter came...he was left out in the cold, unprepared. It's hard to imagine during times of peace and plenty that a cold winter of hardship and disaster could be lurking just down the road. The recent tornados, earth quakes, and a bad economy have been an eye opener to many people and have inspired them to get to work...to prepare for hard times ahead. Cindy's post today at Rick-Rack and Gingham really made me think. You should visit her blog...she's a true "Country Woman."
