I must say that there isn’t a day that goes by lately that I am not surprised in some way or another.  As my last post said, our A@s was in the fire and we were on the cusp of losing our van to the dreaded “Repo Man”! (Sounds almost like a superhero doesn’t it?)  I actually thought that this time was it and there was no way to pull our butts out of this one!  This turned out not to be the case! Just as I was about to hoist the white flag of surrender and resign myself to having lost the battle of debts, a totally unexpected proposal from a totally surprising individual was presented to me!!

We were on our way out to have a consoling Whopper at BK for dinner, it was $1.79 Whopper day in our neck of the woods, when our eldest daughter said something in the back of the van that I didn’t really catch. I just figured she was gabbing about work and things with her mom, and I was still pondering and delving deep into the corners of my noodle for a solution, those who know me well will tell you that I do not like to give up or lose the battle to the debt mongers!  Little did I know that I should have been paying attention to the other conversation going on in the van!  What I had missed and found out later in BK was that my sweet dear eldest daughter had offered up the majority of her savings to keep us from losing the van!  Can you say “Knock me over with a feather why don’t you”!

I totally did not expect that to happen.   I didn’t even know that she had saved up that much money in her MM account, let alone be willing to bail us out.  I must say that she has definitely grownup/matured a great deal this past year.  I guess having a job and having to pay your own bills has taught her a good life lesson.

All I can say is I that God sure does work in mysterious ways, and I am one of the luckiest men I know to have such a wonderful daughter.  I must admit that the apple didn’t fall far from the tree where my daughter and wife are concerned!!

Thought for the day:

Never underestimate the power of family or love.  They both show there true colors and depth when you least expect it!

Did you tell your family how much you love them today?!?
