I have been working on thinking differently. I have had to be very intentional about it and practice it. This week it was put to the test when my car overheated. I found a garage close by and they said it was my water pump and all that goes with replacing it. Seven hundred and fifty dollars. I didn’t have the money. But ... Rather than go to my place of despair, i decided to think about it differently. So I thought, I wonder how this will all work out... i took it a step farther and thought I can’t wait to see how this will all turn out. I called a friend to ask her hubby if i was getting ripped off. He said, “No, in fact if you will have them do it rather than me i will pay the bill and you can pay me back when you can”. Problem solved. Not the way i would have planned or chosen. I hated being bailed out but i couldn’t afford it. I told my friend how bad i felt that they had to help me and she said “are you kidding? Thank you for an opportunity to help”. That is what friends are for.
