I had no idea!

I had no idea that the one thing....on a list of 99...that would get the greatest response would be that I haven't bounced a check!!!  I had to LOL!  for more than one reason.  

But it is name is Sara and I have never bounced a check!!  

I would like to tell you that it is because I am a rule follower and the rules say you don't write a check when you don't have the money to cover it!!  Or that I am a very detailed person and know exactly how much money I have.  Or that I am so responsible that I have never lived beyond my means.  Though I have been good at not living beyond my means.....there is more to the story!

And before you think too highly of me *cough*, I need to tell you that I am really one of those who doesn't balance her check book!!  Yep, I get the checks written in the register, but somehow never get around to balancing it.

And I have been known to, more than once, close a checking account and open a new one at a new bank rather than balance my check book.  mom, cover your eyes!

So, you see, it is quite a miracle that I have never bounced one!  

If they had put "seen a miracle" on the list....... I could have highlighted it!!!

I am so thankful for things like overdraft protection and online banking where I can check my balance now. I lived on the edge in earlier years, as much from disorganization as a tight budget. God's grace is amazing.

I have never bounced a check. I cannot conceive of such a thing!

I, too, am very thankful for overdraft protection. Definitely one of man's greatest creations.

I love about the "miracles" on the list, too! Oh...I've seen our God do MANY of those. :)

Hugs my friend...

LOL! I am such a rule follower as well, but I have to say that I have bounced a check way back when. I guess before I became all grown-up and responsible.

If every aspect of all our lives were an open book - we would find something about you we do not like. Hence: those stupid tags that make us "tell all."
OK. That said:
I like you. You are human. The fact that you close accounts and re-open them in liue of balancing your checkbook, (omigosh!) explains EVERYTHING! Sort of puts the parable of the talents in perspective. HUH??
...back to work now on those "tell all" tags so we can pick on you some more!
Your friend (I hope!)
