Our Attorney

by adustyframe ~ August 22nd, 2016

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.

    A few years ago, I stopped reading blogs and now I’m finding my way back again. I am so glad to read that you are still putting up new posts! How old are your guys now? I still picture James as a 7 year old kid, so the image of a 7yo mowing grass makes me laugh. How wonderful that he is able to do that! And I just love this post. 🙂

    i had stopped writing for a long time … just a lot of hard things that was not able to write about. idk if you know … but my girls’ dad died unexpectedly couple years back, and it’s just been a very hard grieving process b/c of not only his death but b/c of all the horrible things he did, including telling them he didn’t want them anymore 🙁

    Some attorneys are decent. I worked for them for most of my first 20 working years. Glad James has a good job.
