My hubby was out of work for 3 weeks with a back injury and he missed two weeks of pay. Then when we thought we dodged the broken transmission bullet, we found out we hadn't. -Just delayed the inevitable. In fact, we even had to throw in a radiator for good measure. Blah!
Now, we can officially tremble along with other people when they say they "hope it isn't the transmission."
I told the kids that a new transmission means that we have to live with one of them when we get old. ; )
But, seriously, I hope when we look back on this time we remember that God has been faithful and that He somehow He really does "meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus." Phil 4:19
We'll be the people with the t-shirt to prove it. : )
