Thursday kicked off with a visit from the money fairy while I was asleep. The money fairy really doesn’t visit me often enough these days. I actually thought she had lost my address a long time ago.

I woke up to discover a pile of cash on top of my also sleeping computer, with a note from my sister saying, “We gotta help each other out. We’re all we got. xo”

I was so touched that I had to take a moment. I walked out into the sunny garden, where the hummingbirds were buzzing around and the cats were playing, and thought how lucky I was to have such a wonderful family.

I was still drinking coffee when my neighbor and Rose’s daughter, Catrin, stopped by to give me some money for her half of the cable bill. More money! Then the phone rang to tell me that Miss Scarlett* was finally ready to leave the emergency room. Between the cash from the money fairy and the coupon I had received earlier in the week from the garage, the bill to repair her was much more tolerable than I had anticipated.

I love days where people throw money at me. It should happen more often.

*I’m beginning to think I need a “Car” category. Though I hope not.

    What a great family you have Suzy, I’m sure you would do the same for your sister. We all need the strength and joy that comes from knowing that we are loved, with it we march tirelessly. With it, we are so able to sacrifice for others.

    I have always noticed , in the past, that once we started tossing money again & again to sort out car problems… is a hint that another one is due!!!! Hope this is not necessary….. yet….. for you. But you need to know that you are in a safe vehicle too.

    I love your family stories. It is wonderful that you are there for each other – that is how families are meant to work….
