You’re gonna think I’m chatty today. I actually wrote this last week but got sidelined for a few days with an issue. I’m hands deep in a project but wanted to let you know that Something good is always on the way. This has been a tough week at home, I’ve been feeling so tested, and have done my best not to complain and have tried to understand the “why”. I waited it out and as always happens, something good always shows up – so much of the time it’s far better than what originally went wrong.
On Memorial Day I was going to the cemetery with new flowers and on the way down my street, I got a flat tire on my car. I eased back down the street to put the car in the driveway and set out in the truck. Once I got uptown, I figured out I had a screw in the tire so I called DD to drive me to cemetery and ultimately to follow me home. We stopped at every gas station on the way to put air in since auto repairs were closed for the day. Two flats in one day – how does that happen? The next day since I had nothing to drive, I conquered how to change a flat – yes, it took me an hour and a half, but I did it! Driving to Sams Club for a repair, I just knew that I’d have to buy a new tire. The man helping me was soooo nice and they only charged me $15.00! Something good is always on the way.
I knew I couldn’t change a tire on a big ole truck and today when the guy came to mow the lawn he said he noticed I had a flat tire and that he could fix it. He did! He added air and plugged the hole. Something good is always on the way.
Yesterday, my Central Air Conditioning/Heating died in the house. It’s quite hot in Florida right now. I’ll have to admit that I did have a little cry over this one, a stress cry. I know it’s not repairable because I just paid to have it repaired 15 days ago. So after an hour or two I called a good company to get a quote and oh, he let me have the quote. Stress cry a little bit more :-) Smart me sat down and called the tiny company that normally does maintenance to get a comparable quote and it seems that for a relatively little amount, they can fix the motor which will buy me another six months to a year. Something good is always on the way.
I’m.all.good! We all have those days, it’s not just me. It feels good to get through it and I thank God for equipping me with the patience to know that something good is always on the way…
I’ve been out of touch here and wrote this last week on June 5th and didn’t want too much time to get away from me before sharing. Today I wanted to share one of my older cards that I came across in a link sent to me; the original post and product list is HERE. It so made me smile so I decided to share it again for newer readers!
