My heart is so full of thanks today. I have a lot of people to thank, so what better way than to share this moment with the whole world.
This whole post is one gigantic THANK YOU and a HUG!!!!
When I started this journey with God to health and wellness, I heard about this amazing blender.
Called the Vitamix.
At the time, I could not, in good conscious buy a new blender, when the one I had worked just fine. Especially not one that expensive.
My wonderful brother, on the other hand, after making fun of me for wanting a blender that was that pricey, bought one for himself. So I used his for awhile. (Almost broke it a couple of times! Oops, good thing the Vitamix is built tough.)
Driving 45 mins to use a blender, is not the most cost effect idea either but I saw my family too, not just the blender. hehehe
With a family and a house, stuff always comes up that takes higher priority than a shiny, new, amazing blender.
This year, I don’t know if God blessed me with more customers or if I just spent less overall. But when it came to the end of December, I had an extra $100 in cash. I sat there and thought, WOW! Nothing came to mind, that I wanted, or needed. It occurred to me that I had money from other Christmas gifts too. To make it even sweeter, I noticed I was still busy come January. (Notoriously dead at the salon). All that to say this, God was providing for something but I was not seeing what that was for just yet.
Fast forward to this past Friday afternoon, I was trying to make a smoothie. Like any other day. Sadly, our trusty bullet, which was very very old,(like I want to say 10+ years old) was leaking from the crack in the base of the blade. It had been cracked for some time but not leaking to this extreme.
Oh, I also forgot to mention, all the cups we had were barely working.
So we were down to one broken cup and a cracked blade.
It was getting bad.
It took 10 min or more to blend up one 8oz smoothie. That was it!
Time to retire the bullet and pick out a new blender.
Yes, I wanted the Vitamix, but it is so expensive and the sale they always have at Costco was in November, right after black Friday. It’s January, so there was no way it would still be on sale.
So I jumped on Costco’s website to see if any other blender was on sale. January, I guess, everyone thinks more about getting healthy, so ALL blenders (most) were on sale.
Even the VITAMIX!
The sale had two days to go, so I had to decide, to get a cheaper blender, or if it was time to get the blender I had wanted.
I got all my cash together, every last cent. Christmas money and the first few days of working. I was $39.99 short.
So I wrote out the balance with a check!
HUGE THANKS to my parents, between Christmas and my dad’s haircut (uncle too), my extremely generous customers giving a little extra love in Christmas tips. Today I got to buy my brand new, red Vitamix! Still on sale.
Thank you all. I appreciate each and every one of you. From the bottom of my heart.
After I brought it home, I just sat in the kitchen and was taken a back how blessed I am.
This was a personal victory too, in so many ways. I almost decided to save this blessing for new tires on my husbands car or that “thing” that always comes up. Like I always do. Not today. The money was a blessing. I decided not to live in a place of lack. Instead, I chose to live in a place of abundance. God will provide for those things at that time. We needed a new blender. God provided the opportunity and the money to pay for it in CASH.(plus a tiny amount in check form )
Thank you to all who read this post. For being a witness to my life.
