You were caught in an avalanche.To be rescued, you need to make it through the night. What thought(s) would give the strength to go through such a scary, dangerous situation?
The thought of getting caught in an avalanche is dreadful. If it ever happens, although I hope it never does.
My thoughts will be about all the different prayers I have learned to get out of dangerous situations. I’d be repeating those all night and will ask God to forgive me and will promise I’d be more caring towards all my friends, family and neighbors, if I am rescued alive.
I know prayer always helps, in my mind there is nothing else better than prayer.
Tell us about a time you found out after the fact that you’d been mistaken and you had to eat a serving of humble pie.
I met Mini in the university, she was friendly and very charming, she and I became friends immediately.She introduced me to her family members who lived in Dhaka. They were always very nice to me,every time they had a party, I was the first one on their list.
Mini’s family moved from Calcutta to Dhaka permanently, her parents did not because her father had a pharmacy which he was planning to sell.Her sisters and brothers moved to Dhaka.
Once her eldest sister had a party in her house, I was invited, the food served was very tasty, there was beef, chicken, fish, all kinds of vegetables and salads it was a huge affair.
Mini’s sister was an excellent cook, she worked for days organizing the party. Her food was delicious, she forced me to try every single dish she cooked, only my mother cooked slightly better. I loved the atmosphere they all treated me like one of their relatives, I never felt out of place when I went to their house.
It was a dinner party I’ll never forget!
