Holding on tight
I got in a car accident on Friday afternoon on the way home from my work trip. It was pouring down rain and I was FIVE miles away from being home! It was my fault, too. Luckily, it was my rental car that took all the damages, not my own. Also, no one was hurt. Big praise! All this to say, that it has put me back about $600 that I have to pay to my work (I am under their auto insurance for work trips). Also, I received two large medical bills in the mail this past month. AH! Just when I thought I was doing good and starting to accumulate some type of savings and actually begin to chip away at debt I racked up during college, Life happens, right?! Seems to be that way a lot, funny as it sounds. So, basically until summer, I will be a budget freak (not that I wasn't already) and will have to cut out all luxuries in life -- that would include coffee and the occasional manicure. It is times like this in life when I really need to rely on God for support, knowing He will take care of me and that all the bills will be paid. .... eventually.
