Dear Santa

Dear Santa,

Thank you for my check of money that the government somehow forgot to pay me while I was in the Air Force.

Nevermind that I have been out for over a year.

Nevermind that I now live in Mississippi and you sent it to my parents' house (that may be my fault, Santa. Don't worry, I'll be changing that soon so that mistake won't happen again....)

Because when I got the phone call from my Mom?

I was a little freaked out why she was calling me on Monday nite sounding worried...

Until she finally got to the point and told me that we had a check for almost two grand.

Waiting for me.

This check could not have come at a more perfect time.

Property taxes, Christmas, travelling, camera lens....

You definitely got my list right this year!

Thank you, Santa! I now know to be good each and every year....cross my heart...

:D woo hoo!!! Sometimes we don't realize how perfect timing can be until something like this happens :) just think, if you would have had it a year or two ago it would definitely be gone by now ;) :D congrats!

I love it when you get a little money surprise, the best kind.

This is always a tough financial time for everyone, it is the perfect time.

Have fun!
