If you’re on Facebook, you’ve probably noticed some of your friends doing the Thankful Thirty (or maybe you’re doing it yourself). Each day, you share something for which you’re thankful. It’s a nice way to get in the holiday spirit. And by holiday, I mean Thanksgiving, because it is still November, everyone.
So, I was going to do a blessings post like that, where I shared all the little blessings I’ve received lately. Extra days from the librarian on season one of Boardwalk Empire. A spescial 28% discount at my favorite Litchfield store. That kind of thing.
But it turns out that this week is more of a Fortunately / Unfortunately kind of week. So, here we go . . .
Fortunately, Zoe had her first dance recital Friday night.
Unfortunately, also Friday night, our car wouldn’t start.
Fortunately, we got a ride from Mike’s parents.
Unfortunately, our car still wouldn’t start on Saturday.
Fortunately, a local garage put a new battery in that day. Also fortunately, Mike got a job as a security guard at Menards, so we can pay for the new battery!
Unfortunately, our car stopped working again while Mike was driving home from his first day of job training.
Fortunately, a tow truck from the local garage was able to go and get him.
Unfortunately, the tow truck stopped working as they pulled into town.
What fortunate and unfortunate things are happening for you this week?
Fortunately, we only have to pay for the new fuel pump that our car needs. (Although, I think I know how the local garage can pay for the new fuel pump for the tow truck.)
