Silver Lining

So a few weeks ago I was looking at my bank account, and realizing how poor I am. I prayed and told Heavenly Father I would only spend my money on things that were of worth if He stretched my bank account. I believe in miracles, and that seemed like a pretty good idea to me.

Weeks go by without my purchase of unhealthy foods or random songs I like, and I check my bank account and a significant sum is missing. I'll try not to be bitter about this one, since it is technically my fault, but- long story short, a purchase from a couple months ago went through that I thought I had cancelled. Definitely unexpected.

The silver lining? I had four dates this week (just when you think the freak show is ending, but that's just the way things work out sometimes), and an invitation to dinner at a friend's house for Sunday. Do the math- I didn't buy dinner starting Wednesday and won't till Monday. I usually hate when people tell girls that dates are a free meal if nothing else, because I'd like to think I'm above spending time with someone just for food. However, this week, it worked out in my favor.

And, for the record, I was open to the idea of all the people I went out with this week. I was also extremely grateful haha. So, God works in mysterious ways, but I'm not complaining.

And, because I love this song and it has a fitting title, please enjoy this music video by Rilo Kiley.
