You see, I am afraid of things I don't understand. I understand insurance as a whole; the big picture if you will. But I don't understand the little things. Every summer when we reactivate our RV, a big chunk of money comes out of my checking account; money I can't really afford at the beginning of the summer. But what am I to do? The RV has to be insured. So I call and talk to the assistant of my agent at the "big commercial insurance agency" and she tries to explain it to me and I just give up.
But the gal who manages our street rod insurance told me about a new insurance company she has a line on. She's been pleased with their rates and their service. She started rattling off the things she finds important in car insurance and home owners insurance, which of course to me sounded like "yada, yada, yada."
But I got pretty psyched, because I'm big on using the neighborhood, family owned and operated insurance agency. Somehow I feel better when I can appear in their office and discuss my insurance needs and what is working or not working for me.
Maybe I just need the attention, but I've really missed that ability since "big commercial insurance agency" passed my policy around until it ended up in an office that's not convenient for me to just stop in. And although I've talked to my current agent, and she is perfectly nice and competent, I've never met her.
There is just a warm cozy feeling for me even when I'm just driving by knowing there are people in there working for ME! I know, they have other clients, maybe even more important clients, but it's all about me in my head.
So why am I thanking God? Because sometimes He just knows what I need before I do. It's been an issue I've been struggling with for a year or more and then the phone just rang out of the blue and the right words were said and I was able to get on a path to solving my insurance issues.
So really, when it's God on the phone (or his neighborhood insurance agent), you should take the call.
