I am without a car right now because it is being repaired. It sucks to have to take the bus, but I am grateful that I have a bus to take. I am also grateful that I have housing and food to eat. There are many other things for which I am grateful.
I find that when I list the things for which I am grateful, my whole perception of what is going on changes in a positive way. I am no longer whining and complaining about how bad things are, but focus on all the good things that are. I am grateful for a sister who is willing to take a chance on me and put the expense on her credit card with the promise that I will pay her back. It will take almost everything I now have to do so, but I am grateful that I have a job that will help with this expense. I am grateful that I have disability money coming in each week to pay for basic expenses that I have each week to pay for food and gas.
I just hope things do not get much worse and I lose my job. That would make it very hard to get back on my feet. I hate to ask the church for more money than I have right now. They have so many other people who are in worse shape that I am in to take care of. All I know to do is take it one day at a time and hope for the best.
