See, Things Are Working Out.

This is really a follow up to my post

Apparently, I Believe in Miracles. Who Knew?

This week has been very stressful money-wise. As the necessities piled up (including another, very expensive car repair), I watched our bank account slip farther and farther below the minimum balanced we maintain. We keep a minimum balance because almost half of our bills are automatically debited from our account, and sometimes the debit-ors like to move the date around just enough to screw everything up if we aren’t careful.

Anyway, groceries were about twice what I normally spend, diapers and formula have really added expenses we weren’t counting on since our baby #3 will be breastfed and cloth-diapered, and then about $800 in medical bills arrived yesterday.

But today is pay day, and when I checked our account, I was shocked and incredibly grateful to see that my husband was paid $191 more than usual. The amount we needed to get our bank account back to the minimum balance? Just over $200.

“…my husband was paid $191 more than usual. The amount we needed to get our bank account back to the minimum balance? Just over $200.”

In all the chaos, I hadn’t realized he’d been given overtime.

In all the chaos, I hadn’t realized everything would be ok.

In all the chaos, I forgot that miracles really do happen, and that they are happening for my family. Right now.
