Thank You

I got a cheque in the mail today. It isn't a big cheque, not by any stretch of the imagination, but it is enough to buy bus tickets to get the kids to school, and Hubby to work. Tomorrow my middle daughter has her academic award ceremony, and I was worried that I wouldn't have bus fare to get us there. I wasn't expecting this money until next week, so it truly is a Godsend. I think that there can only be one explanation for this....
The prayers and thoughts of my blog buddies, all of whom have been incredibly supportive. Not once was I told to shut up, or to stop whining...Everyone was so kind. I had friends tell me that they would feed me if they could, offer to roll their coins for me, and was given the ulitmate offer by 2 blog friends and their families. I almost took them up on it, too. (No, really, I was going to phone today because of the bus fare situation). I have been shown more love and support in the past few days by blog buddies, then I have in the past few years by my own family.
Thank you to everyone. Thank you Marni, and 4D, and their families. Thank you to Diana, Dilling, Tod, Ldbug, Cinydianne, *(Asterisk), Camie Vog, Nonny, Callie, Coffeypot, Kate Isis, EVERYONE for your kind words and best wishes. And of course, thank you to Heidi (and Jethro) who have been dealing with me for YEARS.
Thanks, guys.

Tod said...

Great news!

and err...can someone tell a stupid Brit what rolling coins means?

tod- You don't roll coins? You know, we put pennies into rolls of 50 cents, quarters into rolls of $10...Then you can take 'em to the bank and cash 'em in for bills..

dilling -I'm on it!!! Tonite KC and I go to our last VORP meeting to deal with the crack heads..I'll let you know how it goes..

marni - thank you...

ldbug - I did a happy dance, too.

"Dealing with you!" bah. We all deal together, baby.

Oh I know! I saw those in Vegas. We were given little paper tubes of coins. I'd never seen them before I went to The States. Over here we used to just take loose change to the bank and tip it all over the counter and say, "Count that and be quick about it!"

CindyDianne said...

Oh YAY! Wuhoo!! Yee-HAW!

**happy dance*

You must be relieved! I am relieved for you!

**happy dance** again

Camie Vog said...

Woo-hoo! Hooray! Good thoughts really do work. I am sure of it because I have set a record with the number of clients I have this week. I chalk it all up to those good thoughts!

BTW- You are very welcome.

I’ve never received a cheque before. Did it taste good? Do you ware it? What do you do with a cheque. Down here in the lower 48 we sometimes receive checks, but I don’t thank those are the same thing, are they? Ours is a substitute for money. They can by happiness, misery, food, clothes and fair weather friends. But our real friends are here no matter if you have a check or not. You are really rich. (And save me a bite of you cheque.)
