A few months ago, my dear wife decided she wanted to go back to college and pursue a teaching degree focused on early childhood education. Her choice to return to college was born from an obstacle course of factors that would make others turn away or give up, and yet she persisted! I’m proud of my wife for going back to college, despite working full-time and tending to our six month-old baby. Yes, her stubborn will has often guided her through any number of life’s struggles. However, that same stubborn willpower has contributed to quite a few of our struggles as well! Last year, we were dealt a heavy financial blow when the air conditioning system in our home stopped working. It would still circulate air, but the incoming air was warm, and almost sticky if that makes sense. I thought the air filter just needed to be replaced, however even the best HEPA air filter made no difference to our air quality at that point; My wife refused to spend money the money for the necessary repairs, and said that it to justify needing the repairs, and what my wife failed to consider was that it was only May! We were due for some horrendous haet over the coming summer, although she insisted it could wait. Before long, I was at a point where I couldn’t take it anymore. I made a service visit myself, and had the HVAC specialists at our home only a day later… Just so my wife didn’t have to worry about the costs, I was able to finance the repairs and make payments. I would’ve paid for the repairs in full though, if it meant having the air conditioning system fixed and ready to blast chilled air!
