Money has never been a strong point in my life. I have money but I don't focus on having excess money in my bank account. I have a savings but it doesn't have thousands and thousands of dollars in it. I've never came into big windfalls or gambled and won big. Today though I found out that all provincial employees are getting a bonus due to the union. Within the next few months we all get $1750, 4% increase and then next January we get $1250! That's great news!!! I need new tires and Jacob's school is going to cost $450. SO the $1750 will cover those costs after the tax man takes his share. Then I came home and had a phone message that my taxes were done. Now I had no clue what the end result would be for this year. This was the first year I've had Jacob, I was on EI for 10 months of the year, so I really had no clue. It turns out I'm getting over $4000 back!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was shocked! Goodbye one student loan!!!!! Thank you God for these gifts because I do know that all money really does come from you!
