An excellent/good credit report can't always take the place of good people and good rearing! I believe all things happen for a reason and this was either to lift your consciousness to believing that you and your family deserve the best...and/or to let the landlord know that there are good people in this world and not to base them solely on a credit report or go strictly by the books!
WTG and enjoy your new home! What did your son say when you mentioned his good manners were mentioned by the landlord?
Sandyk I am mortified to realize that in my distress, I did not even tell my son she commented on his manners!! We were, of course, protecting the children from all of the politics and red tape that go along with renting a new place, so we just didn't even say anything. I did just talk to him about it and he gave me his sweet little smile when I told him how proud of him I was for being so kind and remembering his manners. I have to go because now I have to scold him for squirting water and chasing his little brother in the house.
Wow...what a great ending. After reading your post yesterday, it made me realize that no matter how bad you got it, there is always somebody out there that is worst off. I'm saying that so that you will always keep that in mind. There are days when I feel like there is no hope (not for any particular reason, just get fed up with the world) , and then for instance, I turned on the radio this morning, and the St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital was doing a fundraiser, and this little boys mom was talking about how her son has been given 6 months to live..................so, after hearing that, It made me realize that my problems weren't so bad after all.
I am sooooo happy for you and your family. You really sound like a great person. Thanks for sharing the update....it made my day knowing my prayer was answered!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
