This weekend we celebrated my daughter’s birthday with a simple day of activities together. She turned 16 Sunday.
The weekend, however, ended with terrible complications. My husband hit a deer in our van. My husband, daughter, and her friend came out of the small accident unharmed, but the deer died on the side of the road as my daughter wept.
Tomorrow, I now have to fit in a visit to the hospital for a blood transfusion and a trip to the car insurance company. I will not be able to visit my mom in rehab.
This month I went on a faith journey as I faced trying times. God is holding everything together for me. This latest bump will iron out in the end.
Thank you all for praying for my on my journey.
I wrote this post for the 31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes and the Write 31 Days 2018 challenge.

Sometimes our willingness to wait on God is the very act that opens the doors of abundance in our lives.
