I can’t believe it

by adustyframe ~ September 26th, 2007

I had a Dr’s appointment this morning. I woke James up early.

This is not his favorite thing! We hustled out the door with just enough time to drop him at Grandma’s and get across town.

The car won’t start.

It’s not cold. There is gas in it.

Nothing. It doesn’t even sound like it’s getting any gas.

Last night, we ran errands and had no problems. No strange sounds. No problems with it not wanting to start. I distinctly remember praying last night, “God please just let this car run through the winter and not continue to break down.”

I don’t know what’s going on.  I haven’t exactly burst into tears this morning but it’s feeling like they are under the surface.

Thankfully, I can walk to the store. It’s not very far and the weather is pleasant. I couldn’t walk to the Dr’s appointment and I can’t walk to the prison tomorrow morning for the marriage seminar. I know someone will help me get a ride out there and pick me up, it’s just such a continual thing with this car.

This car given to me exactly when I needed one. It truly was such a blessing, I just don’t understand why it can’t just run.

My mother in law forgot today was my Dr’s appointment and she wasn’t even awake when I called her to tell her I wasn’t going. I reminded her about tomorrow and she said, “All day?”

I took a deep breath lest I burst into tears and reminded her of the times.

I had made arrangements and planned this with her weeks ago.

If she had said she didn’t want to watch him all day I think I’d have  had a meltdown.

Thankfully she said, “Well, ok.”

If you care to pray for me today, please do. I know I will need it.

    I’m sorry you’re having an especially rough week.

    Sounds like you need a respite day. I hope you can attend the marriage seminar tomorrow, sit next to Lee, hold hands, put all the other things piling up out of your mind for the day and enjoy the day.

    I’ll be praying for you.

    Thank you

    Had another thought: you mentioned the car ‘does nothing’. Could it just be the battery? Praying that it is something simple (aka: cheap!) to fix.

    Could be? But the battery was new in December.

    Oh, I should have checked in earlier today. It’s not that I wasn’t praying for you, just not for these specifics — I’m praying now.

    That’s alright:) Thank you for praying
