I had a choice Monday night - go to the gym before RCIA or go to Mass. I decided to go to the gym because I have been stuck on my weight loss and it is starting to come off again.
After a good 60 minute work out I was on my way to St Joe's for RCIA class. I was stopped at a stop light at Briggsmore and Oakdale. SMASH!
Right into the back of me comes a white Suburban. I became a Honda Civic Hybrid sandwich.
I think my paid-for 2008 Honda Civic Hybrid that I kept in perfect condition is now a total loss.
I won't know for sure until Friday when the inspection will take place.
The other party has taken full responsibility so that is a relief.
My cousin is going to represent me for the medical claim as my right knee now swells and clicks when I start walking on it.
I will have another car payment which I cannot afford and so will have to go into my savings. I can kiss goodbye going to the international in Atlanta as the car payment money I was not having to make anymore was going into savings for that trip.
I am struggling to find God in all this - I understand He did not cause the accident and I am joking when I say, "See? I should have gone to Mass!" as though it was a punishment. I am joking a lot - because if I do not stop joking I will start crying at what feels like the constant problems I have just getting through life. Nothing is ever easy.
Yet I know I am blessed and I know I am loved and I just need to stop complaining.
Please help me to do that, Lord. I want to be joyful and not a complainer.
