Checks In The Mail? Yes, Please!

Hubs walked back into the house with our mail in his hands and a frown on his face. Oh great, what now?!
It was a letter from his former employers, the much hated and maligned, big-box store, W-Mart. He worked there for a year during our last episode of being between ministry jobs, about 11 years ago. 

He read it a loud and my cynical side kicked in as he read the words,

"A lawsuit against the store during your time of employment
has required us to send you this check for _________."

I said it was probably a check for $1.43.

Nope. He handed me the check.... it was for $389 !!!


Hubs got the bills out and the money was soon bye-bye, but what a fun surprise in the mail today!!
God (and W-Mart) has not forgotten us!


  1. Well, I've heard of places where you had to sue to get what's rightly yours. But really!
    Timely addition to your fortunes, nonetheless. Hope hubs didn't spend it all in one place. (I'm sure he didn't.)

  2. What a nice surprise! I´m so happy for you.

  3. I've NEVER been forgotten by a bill - and never remembered with a check in the mail.

    Happy days for you!

  4. What a great day to get the mail! Yay!

  5. What a great blessing to have a nice little windfall like that!

    Hugs & love,

  6. How nice! Maybe it will be a start of more nice surprises. God is good!

  7. We get one from USAA each year if we don't have a need to call on our car insurance - it is always a very pleasant surprise!
