I spoke with Emma on the phone earlier today and the conversation has kept me smiling...
"Hi Aunt E"
"Thank you for the card," she said, "It said happy birthday from Aunt E"
Me, wanting to make sure Uncle George got some credit too, said, "Who else is it from?"
She became very quiet, then, knowing she figured it out, replied, "The mailman!!"
The conversation continued when again she made me laugh...
"There was a check too!" she exclaimed.
"Really? What are you going to use it for?"
"Something I want...but first..." she said, "I have to take it to the man at the bank and he'll give me a thousand dollars!"
I don't know about the readers of Abundant Grace, but I'm looking into this claim...I'd love to take a $5.00 check to the bank and get a thousand back. If I find such a bank, I'll be sure to do another post!
