This happened yesterday (Monday). I have 4 students that are graduating today from middle school. Since I’m a teacher I only get paid once a month so by the end of the month I’m living really tight. Especially with a teenage daughter. As you all know, teachers don’t get paid very much but I work with special needs children and I wanted to be able to get my students leis for their graduation….something that was special and something that reflected my culture and something that I love. I went to bed Sunday night listening to my “Secret” CD before bedtime. And I went to bed thinking to myself, “Please let the money be there so I can get my students this gift,” and went to bed as usual.
Yesterday when I got home from work I told my daughter to come with me to the PO Box. As I was walking into the post office I said in my mind, “Please let there be a check.” Then I caught myself saying that and corrected myself and said, “There WILL be a check there!” I walked to the box with confidence and opened the box. There was not only 1 but 2 checks. Each in the amount of $147.43. I said “THANK YOU!” and ran out to the car where my daughter was waiting. I told her the exciting news and we went to the florist immediately. He had the exact color that I wanted. I was able to purchase the 4 leis for my students and have enough money to give my daughter gas money for her car and a little bit extra for her to purchase some items that she needs for a sail academy she will be attending in two days! =)
