Saved By A Call...

This is not the first time....but I hope it will be the last...

After doing my chores downstairs and leaving the kettle of water to boil, I went up and did my own stuff... checked my emails, facebook, etc etc on the Internet.. then my house phone rang and it was from my sister.  Both of us started to  "boil porridge" phone. 

In the midst of our conversation, my handphone started to ring and I ended the call with my sister.  Ran downstairs to retrieve the call ..only to that the kettle of water was boiling and boiling like forever!  I quickly off the stove fire....

By then my handphone has also stopped ringing... 

In my heart, I gave a word of "thanks" to whoever called me on my handphone and a Big Thanks to my God who prompted the fella to call me...

It was from my buddy.. the first question she asked was, "Did you call my house phone earlier?  Cos I was in the toilet.. when I came out, it stopped."

Then I began to thank her... telling her about my kettle of water going to dry up already...

She kept reprimanding me for being "stingy" cos I didn't invest in an electric kettle... then she added she will buy me one this Saturday.... isn't that nice of her? 

Meanwhile, I better not boil water these few days... hahaha.....

  2. Gosh!..that is dangerous. I can't imagine what will happen if not for that call. Get an electric automatic switch off kettle once it boils.

  3. Please do get an electric kettle. A whistling kettle won't serve its purpose if you are busy "boiling porridge" coz your focus will be on yakking! Lolz

  4. It's God who rang your friend and made her think that you'd called her earlier. That led to her calling you back and saved whoever God wanted to rescue. Miracles do happen, especially on those whom He loves dearly...
