We had three different attorneys during this journey of ours. I refuse to tally how much that cost because it boggles my mind and because those costs have made an impact even today on our finances.
But here’s a story that makes me giggle every time I think of it.
We found out that the receptionist for one of our attorneys is a Christian. She was always very polite and kind to us and I appreciated that so much.
I was looking for an attorney recently and called there to see if this attorney did the paperwork we needed to get done. She answered and was excited to hear from me and asked about us. I told her God had blessed us with another baby and I said that I always thought about bringing him into show him off to her. She said to come in anytime.
We did one day and talked to her for a couple minutes. A week or so later, we drove past the office and saw her mowing in her dress clothes and shoes. I told James to hop out and finish that for her.
She went in and asked the attorney and they hired him on the spot to mow for them. We stopped that day to be kind, but they insisted on paying him. They called today and asked him to come over and mow and he came home with a check again.
Maybe I’m just a little odd, but the attorney sending money into our house just makes me smile. James will have to mow more than 275 times before it’s even close to what we paid him but it still makes me smile.
