Should a girl feel special when she gets her very own letter from the IRS?
The answer is no.
The girl should feel picked on because the letter will likely say she owes a lot of money.
Once I bought a house. The state paid a small portion of the down payment through a grant program.
At the time, I was told I didn't need to claim the grant money on my taxes.
I guess I was told wrong.
Last night I sat on my couch going through bills and writing my response letter to the IRS.
I was calculating our hospital expenses and thinking of the reality that Emily may very well be in the hospital through November.
I was just getting off the couch to go in search of chocolate when my phone chimed, telling me I had a new email.
I opened it to find that a dear friend of mine had made a very generous donation to Emily's heart fund.
Instead of eating chocolate I sat and cried.
Five minutes later my phone chimed again.
It was another very generous donation from another friend...one I haven't seen in years.
A few minutes after that Jason walked in the door carrying a package that had been delivered to the hospital.
These were inside:
Jackie at The Cookie Corner sent them . The colors represent strength, hope, courage and faith. Not only are they beautiful to look at, they are delicious! When Jason saw that I was going to eat one he said, "But they're so pretty!"
I don't know how I'll ever begin to thank you all enough for the love and kindness you show us...but know that we're grateful...so so grateful.
