So Blessed

We received a $50 check in the mail!  It was a reimbursement from our medical insurance company for services rendered 1/9/2010.  I have looked back through our records and have no idea what they are refunding us for because I don't know why we would have been at the doctor's on Saturday.  (We actually keep immaculate records and can tell you where we have spent every penny we have ever spent since we were married.)

The only Saturday appointment I can remember since getting married is Oliver's stitches - which was in February 2010. 

We paid a ton of money for services in January - a trip to the hospital for re-hydration of a deathly sick pregnant woman, tons and tons of prescriptions for me to try to figure out how Addison and I could happily co-exist without puking her out, doctors visit after doctors visit to try to change and my meds so everyone could be happy, our first ultrasound...

Either way - yay for an unexpected windfall that is going straight to our student loan!  Oliver and I set a very ambitious goal to pay off our last student loan by the end of 2011 and we made a detailed plan to get it done.  From the moment that he and I began implementing our plan we have been blessed beyond words. 

I testify that Heavenly Father knows us and wants us to reach our goals - however insignificant we might think they are.  I also testify that He can better help us when we include Him in the process of making our plans and when we act in faith to carry out those plans.  I know that we are not going unnoticed.  I know that not all blessings happen in the way we envision and not all prayers for financial freedom are immediately answered - but I am loving all the steps along the way.  Thanks for $50 more!

I'm so excited for you. Yea. I've been dancing around the house singing, "I won!" All day long because I disputed something that was on Evan's credit report---I should have done it like 4 years ago, but---I just sent a verification fax and viola! gone. I won!!! Yea for financial blessings. I send a hearty "amen, sista," your way.
