Everyone has a story

Yesterday was another difficult day here. After taking Matt to drill, as I was pulling into our parking space, the check engine light came on. Tears just started streaming down my face. It was a rough morning.

As I was getting ready for the day it hit me. You never know, by just looking at someone, what their story is. We are so quick to judge people without truly knowing them especially if they have something we want (like a nice car that is reliable!) But those people, with their nice and reliable car, could have a sick child, a cheating spouse, or just lost their job.

Everyone has something going on in their life. Right now we are dealing with a car that isn't reliable and a tough financial situation but I would take that any day over not having my family here or Mady being critically sick. It is all about perspective.

My attitude has changed through the Lord's doing. All day yesterday the phrase "Trust Me" kept coming to my mind. I felt like the Lord was just telling me, Megan trust me. And so today I am making every effort to FULLY trust Him. He is going to work this all out. And to be honest, in the long run, this is not the biggest deal!

Everyone has a story and some are down right heart breaking. I am so grateful that my family has their health, we are able to pay our bills, Matt has two jobs, and I am able to stay home with my Mady (as tough as it is some days).

So today I will focus on the positives, the blessing in my life because life is too short not to.

Feeling blessed today

  1. I hear you about a car that could go at any moment and not being in a position to do anything about it yet. But, I agree, I'd take it over all the other "bad" stuff that could happen.

    Hope it all turns around for you soon!
