You really find out who your friends are when you, yourself are in need. Trust me when I say I am grateful and thankful for each and everyone of them.
I know I have written a blog about the following before, but I have to say it again because it has come around several times in the past two weeks. It’s what happens – you think you have a particular situation mastered and then it comes up again, just to be sure.
The worst thing in the world to me is dealing with insurance companies. God bless. I went to my longtime dentist for my checkup. A week later I got a call from the dentist’s office saying I didn’t have insurance. So now I’m on the phone with the insurance company. We all know it takes forever to talk with a person. I have to say after telling the story at least six times, I was keeping it pretty cool. The issue is still out there, but I am hoping it will be taken care of soon.
So, the other day, one of my friends went to check my post office box. She had a stack of mail. I knew there would be a couple of bills in it. I opened my Culligan water bill and it was twice the amount. I kept it cool. I’m so proud of myself. Turns out I never paid for the month of January. I looked it up with my online banking, which took forever to come up – another test. I kept it cool, though. I paid the bill.
Next, I opened the bill from my Internet provider. Same thing. My bill was doubled, but with a late charge. I called and said the post office must have lost last month’s bills. I looked everywhere for my January bills, not to be found. Since I hadn’t been late for more than three years, they took the late fee off and I paid the bill.
Backstory: Oh yes, the dreaded post office. A couple of years ago I was waiting to get my paycheck from the newspaper I freelance write for. The company had to reissue a check. More than one year later, the check showed up in my post office box. Hysterical! Of course, I told the clerk working.
I’m definitely going to say something to the guy at the post office. That just isn’t right. The thing is I usually remember when bills are due and just pay them. When I’m doing readings on a regular basis ALL track of time disappears. I must try my best to keep one foot in this dimension.
I’m ready for the next test, she said lightly. I sure will keep an eye on my emotions when it comes to difficulties. It’s easy to go off the deep end when you’re telling your story over and over and people are not listening.
Go within. Be centered. Become the light the world needs.
Peace, Joy, Love and Light
