On Christmas Eve I took a bite of a Tootsie Roll. As I opened my bite, so came my cap off my tooth. OUCH! It did ok until I got to the dentist today. Now it feels horrible. Outside of this cap that I have, I've never had any major dental issues. And let me tell you, the cost of 10 minutes in the dentist chair for them to glue it on... $90, my portion is $54.50. I like my dentist, but they said I may need a new crown. I will be shopping around. And did I tell you, it FEELS HORRIBLE!! I couldn't even eat my salad at lunch. I have to go back, but I can't afford the new crown. so I have no idea what I am going to do until then. Ugh!
Imagine if I didn't have insurance, it would have been more. To the tune of an extra $35.50 more. Thank You Jesus for insurance.
I totally take for granted all the times my mouth doesn't hurt... and that I can eat pretty much whatever I want because I have good choppers. Note to self, don't eat another tootsie roll as long as you live!
I think about how many things we take for granted. Ugh, the thought actually sickens me. I hope that in this, I see the miracles of everyday that God sends down to us.
Job 5:9 He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted.
