Hello Beautiful People!!! I know I have not been as consistent and I apologize. I will be coming back to my regularly scheduled writing now. The last quarter of the school year can be a challenge for me. I am looking at all that needs to be done and all the things that still need to be done and it is so easy to become overwhelmed.
Add to this equation, completing paperwork, taking care of kids, doing homework and just preparing for the summer. Of course, in these moments, something minor happens and you just want to lose it. I'll give you an example. Yesterday I turned the key in my ignition and... nothing happened. Did I freak out? Yes!!! Oh my goodness!!! It was really bad too. I called the dealership first because who do you call in these moments? I remember just trying to tell myself, "What are you going to do first, Elle?" It was hard just trying to focus. Then I said to myself, "Is this a dealership issue, a Jiffy Lube issue or an AutoZone issue?"
I'm really good at putting things on the back burner and I said to myself that I don't have to deal with this now. I can deal with this later. So, I opened up the Lyft app to get a ride to work. There was a problem with the payment. I tried with another card and there was another issue with the payment. At that point I recognized that if things aren't working, maybe it's God. I prayed. I prayed, "Jesus, help me do what I need to do." I decided to try and ask for help. I like to be independent but I recognized my need for help. I reached out to a couple of friends. I praise God that Bea texted me back. He asked me what the problem was and I was able to help him that my car was going click click click. Did you know that he came to my house and jumped me? I was so thankful I was a sobbing mess. I was able to go AutoZone and get a new battery. I'm telling you that AutoZone was another blessing where people came out of the woodwork to give me some help. This guy from Triple A made sure that I was able to buy the right battery. Praise the Lord!!!
I was able to make it to my job and hug some babies and have some meetings and be Mrs. Miller because people were willing to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
But here is the real thing. Even when I was stressing, even when I felt out of control, even when it looked and felt bad, Praise the Lord!!! I promise you I don't know what I'm doing but I'll tell you what, Praise the Lord!!!
