Kate so glad to hear about your mom's story :)

Serenity, I totally agree about quality versus extravagence. There are a few things that I will spend extra money on because I know it will last. But I am not extravagent by any stretch. Nothing wrong with quality though if you can afford it!

Hi poorboy, I don't think there is anything wrong with wanting quality, as long as we can afford it.

Now quality versus extravagant may be another matter. I do think some things are worth investing in.

And who knows, you may have performed a miracle for someone and didn't even know it!

You know, I understand and sympathize with Kate's sister. Her desire to insist on quality is something I identify with. Heck, that's partly what got me here. Naturally, I also have a sibling who does not approve. These days, I'm learning to accept lesser things, but it's actually easier for me mentally and financially just not to have things if I can't have the best.

I haven't performed miracles in a while.

Wow Kate, thanks so much for sharing. I have not read the thread yet. Too anxious to reply. :)

Not real sure what to think of your sisters actions, but I will give her this.... At least she is honest about who she is.

As far as your mom, what a blessing in disguise! I love it when little things happen to me and I believe it is God working in cognito.

I still have no idea how my hospital lab bill got paid, but I think I prefer not to know. I does give us hope.

I agree Norma and I had intended to approach her. I only hope that her lips don't become loose after having a few too many. I'll make sure I keep a plate of food with me and if I see any sign of her starting to blab, I'll shove turkey in her!!

I agree with Stacy and the others, ou sis needs to be told to keep the miracle a secret.

I still get that "warm" feeling when I think how happy it made your mom.

Kate, thanks for making me cry at my desk at work :)

Big (((HUG))) to you and your mom, both very deserving of Christmas miracles.

Thanks for sharing.
