When you are praying for a miracle, you gotta have patience.... I'm not great at that. I'm pretty good at being patient if I have something else to distract me. Other than that, not good.
I've been truck shopping. I hate to be picky, but I need to upgrade to a 4x4 with crew cab. With the kid sprouting long legs, we gotta have the space. Add to that the need to pull a trailer filled with bikes, the 4x4's are built tougher and will withstand the wear and tear better than my current truck. In fact, the truck is dying for that very reason, it was not built to haul a trailer as much as I do.
So, even though we have been planning and saving for a while, we are about $5000. Hence the prayer for a miracle. Praying that my current truck will last until we save enough, or somehow that $5k comes to us. And there is nothing else for me to do.
With that in mind, I'm thankful for distractions. Like soccer with the kid, windsurfing and bike riding!
Well, here's to a prayer and a miracle.
