Last night Thom said to me, after I bungled an online transaction which cost us $60 in return check fees and was becoming hysterical, "Maybe you are supposed to learn that we don't have money because we're careful." He meant that as in we do have money (at least as much as we need) because of another reason, namely God's provision.
That's not something an accountant likes to hear, especially one who prides herself on thoroughness and who doesn't easily let go of her mistakes...but that doesn't make it untrue. I like it when Thom is right about things and says just the exact thing needed to snap me out of one of my moods.
This is why I know marriage is good for me.
