ok, heres the deal… money is so tight it can’t even squeek in our family.
The other day I was vacuming ( are we not always cleaning?) and I was noticing that our poor vacume was on its last legs. So I was thinking that it would be time for me to start saving money to buy another but I have eeked out the last of the unneeded things in our life just to pay the bills and was trying to figure out what else we could do with out. I just simply told the lord at that point that we needed a new vacume cleaner and the kids just nodded there heads and agreed.
Today my kids are taking out the trash and found a vacume cleaner. I tell them at first to leave it alone as that is all I need another non functioning thing to throw away when they are not looking. My second oldest goes out and lugs it home anyway. It is a brand new Bissel vacume cleaner! I tell them the motor is probably gone but plug it in and we would see. The motor works! ok, so what is wrong with it? it is so plugged up I have to use a pair of pliers to unplug it. Walah a new vacume! I start remembering the prayer, and it is my oldest that says “see momma you said the lord provides!” We also found the box it came in and the manuel to the vacume. Thank the ever merciful god above my floors will stay clean!
I know this doesn’t sound like much but one less stress in my life is one to be ever grateful for. Its the simple things in life that make all the difference.
