I am reminded again today how blessed my little family is.
My day started with me sleeping in, which was a long awaited occurrence as of late. Sleep in general is an issue for me, and sleep with pain is even more rare. But I woke at 9am – woke my son up – and got ready to have him chauffeur me around.
We drove to the insurance place to change my car insurance since I am not allowed to work. I was informed that although I am on the insurance, and I can change it if I am paying more money to them, I cannot cancel any part of the insurance without my husband’s signature. I tried explaining that he is not even in the province but in the end left with business insurance still on my car. I learned also that my physio that I require will not be covered under Veterans Affairs, and that I would have to re-apply for the Rehabilitation program after my medical EI runs out. Medical EI doesn’t begin until the end of October if I am approved. Why are things so complicated?
We then drove the 45 minutes to pick up my Record of Employment and last cheque, and deposited it into the account before going home.
I had huge plans to rest as my hip is bothering me, my leg is tingling and I have shooting pains throughout my left leg and foot…
I was mentally preparing for cleaning the house in small steps for the Open House on Saturday, when my realtor informed me that there will be a showing tomorrow morning. Yay! All I could think of is:
1. God, please sell this house!
2. How am I going to clean the house that quickly?
3. Why does my back pain have to be flairing up now?
I received a call from the hospital letting me know I have a CT scan tomorrow night. There is usually months of waiting, but the ER doctor ordered this when I went in – few days ago.
As I sat down to check our budget, I realized I had forgotten to enter my husbands pay into it – meaning I could pay the money I borrowed back to my parents and pay some bills earlier than anticipated! Thank you God for you continue to provide for us.
Someone from church brought dinner by today. A much needed blessing to a hectic day. Then, after dinner another someone came by and helped clean the house. The boys cleaned too and it was done much faster than I had imagined! I did still do too much and now that I am resting I can definitely feel more pain, but we are so blessed to have the help that we received today.
I am so amazed (and shouldn’t be so surprised) at how much we are loved and cared for even when we feel lost, doubtful and exhausted at life. I am truly grateful for everyone’s help. I am grateful enough to be alive with grace.
