Who's Got Your Back?

Who do you want with you in a time of crisis? A bunch of women, that's who!

Today while having coffee with 6 other women, I had the priviledge of being part of a team with them. One woman who is 9 weeks pregnant fainted in the bathroom. What followed was a team of women going into action for a crisis.

One woman called 911.
One woman called the husband.
One woman wrote down a list of meds the pregger's woman was taking.
One woman grabbed her wandering toddler.
One woman got the purse and diaper bag.
One woman put cold rags on her forehead.
We arranged for her kids to be picked up from VBS.
We even managed to get her a refund for her untouched $4.00 coffee drink.

All before the EMT got there.

Nobody told anybody what to do, we all just looked around and did what needed to be done. Nobody was in charge. Women just see a need and meet it. End of story. It was a Steel Magnolias scene in action. I just love that about women.

Speaking for this pregnant woman - eating is not a problem! Or so says the scale...

Just so you know, I've always got your back Angel. I may be 600 miles away from you, but I'll always have your back.
