I got a new washing machine today.... oh joy. Two days ago my old one started flooding my laundry room every time I used it. It was old. It was tired. It was...boy do I know the feeling. At any rate it kicked it and the repair guy said it would cost more than it was worth to fix it.
I was sitting on the floor cleaning up that never ending mess that I find every time we move an appliance. When Shane walks into the room and asks if I am excited about my new washer. I raise my eyebrows..excited?
Washing machines are not cool. They are mearly a servant helping me do one of my many tasks as I run this home.... not a status symbol in my eyes at all. No, I am not excited. I would have been more excited if I had been allowed to keep the four hundered dollars in my savings account.
What I am however, is thankful. Thankful because once again the Lord provided the money at just the right time for me to have to blow it. I may not be allowed to save money, that is becoming increasingly obvious but neither am I allowed to run into debt. And for that I am extremely grateful.
AND because we will now have clean clothes and not be forced to run around naked ~ YOU can be extremely grateful too :)
