Little Miracles and the Military Wives' Curse


Since Rob has been gone, I had to take my car in to have the brakes changed and they wanted to charge me $800 to do all kinds of things, my water heater stopped working, and I was caught in a deluge. Typical Military Wives' Curse. Luckily, I have some wonderful friends and God to watch out for us.

My friend, Rebecca, volunteered her husband to change my brake pads which he did this Wednesday.

My friend, Midori, came to scrapbook last Wednesday and called her husband up immediately to come fix the water heater- which he did. It did go out right after he left, again. I called up another friend's husband and he tried to figure out the problem, but couldn't. I said a prayer, fiddled with it and it lit and stayed lit- yeah!

Friday I worked from 7 pm until 3 am. I got home and finally went to sleep around 4 am. I had to wake up at 7:45 am to start the whole soccer game thing. By Saturday night, I was exhausted and my whole body hurt, but I had to go to the store and pick up some milk for Sunday. As soon as I got inside the store, it started raining hard and didn't stop while I shopped. When I came out, I noticed all the ladies under the awning waiting for their husband to pull up. I even noticed a husband waiting for his wife to pull up. I looked out at the deluge coming down and I got a little depressed. I gave a little sigh, thought, "well, no one is coming for me, so I better just get out there." As I started to step out into it a lady called from her car that had just pulled up to the door, "Ma'am, here. This is one of the stores umbrella's." So I got to walk to my car under a big umbrella, that I handed off to someone else when I pulled out. The store also had guys out there in rainslickers helping people unload their groceries, quickly. It is things like that that make me want to frequent a store like Wegman's more often!

The Lord has definitely been looking out for us. The fact that after each one of those things went wrong, immediately there was someone there to offer help, let's me know that we are being taken care of. Thank you to all my Supermen and Superwomen!
