It seems that out financial adviser in the Scotia Bank understood my husband's condition and she is sending out a bank draft so I can walk up to the credit union, deposit it, and then we will have the money to renovate our house. At least that is now over. So have you had any unexpected good news when before you felt that everything was against you?

It sure is. I wish I could have found a lot of money. All I did was find pennies, and an occassional nickel, dime, or quarter and maybe a dollar or a two dollar coin. It was enough to buy a chocolate bar but that was all. And it was not all at once. If it was, I would have been very happy.

Yes, many times, I have lived a hard life with few rewards besides my family,friends and gods love to guide me.So it was always good to have some good news. made it that more enjoyable to get. I am glad to hear that you are getting that bank draft though. So I hope you get that house renovated soon. The sooner the more comfortable him and you can be.

It has been renovated. We have everything fixed up, new lawn, upgraded bathroom, and my husband can go anywhere except down the basement in his power wheelchair and we have the ramp. We also have handitransit so if it is too far to go, we can take that instead.

I guess when good news does not happen that soon, you think that all you get is bad news. We were pretty worried for a while. I thought that we would be in a large financial hole that we could not get out. Now all we need to do is to pay off that darn credit card bill.

Well we are in a financial hole right now. My husband's retirement fund will not be able to pay for everything. he also wants me to give $10,000 each to our sons when he is gone, but that would mean I will have to sell the house, but I do not intend to. I plan to keep it and I might rent out one of the rooms. I cannot see going into an apartment. We might get money back on our income tax and I am sure we will. It is just that all those expenses put us in a bind.

I know this response is a bit late, but I am glad that I could read this good news anyway. I am glad to know that there are still people out there in the banks who understand when we really need something.

I wish there were more like that. It is not that the bank did not know myhusband but he had been going to the Scotia Bank and then the Credit union, but the Credit Union got a new system and that is what made it a bit hard. We did get the money transferred with no problem though.

So am I. My husband has been dealng with the Credit Union, but it was his mother's money in the Scotia bank and when she passed, he had it transferred to Winnipeg after distributing the share of the money that belonged to his brothers and sisters. And he put it in his name, but I heard that the Scotia bank is rather difficult.

This certainly is a good news for you. I still believe if you are a good person you will be blessed and be given more than what you ask for. I have encountered a lot of good things which I didn't really expect at all. I just live a simple life. When I graduated from college I said to myselfI want a job, but I was blessed with a job that is very rewarding. I said I'm happy if I reach a certain amount of salary but I'm getting more than what I initially asked for.

I have never expected things to go good for us and I felt I had to work hard to get anywhere. I never expected that the bank would let us transfer the money to the credit union, with my husband being unable to sign his name because his hands were so crippled up. We had to go to the credit union after the phone call, and get things straightened out and since they knew us they had no trouble with me signing for my husband, but later on I was told to try to get power of attorney because of my husband's physical disablity, so I guess we have to see a lawyer about that soon.

I am glad things are working out. I have gotten good news before like that, and I sure could use it now.

Don't worry. I am sure things will turn around. We have been through the mill and we thought nothing would come. I used to have a big credit card debt and I thought that I would not be able to get rid of it, but I did. I sure could have used good news then, but I had to get out of it myself. No one helped me. I do wish that when we are in the hole, that things will start to get better, instead of getting better when we do not need any help.

I am so glad to hear that. We had alot of hard times trying to buy a home back when we had better credit. One bank finally seen our good credit score and was willing to lend us the money and help us out. I never gave up trying.

We had to go through the wringer to get our first house. They wanted both our incomes and I was trying to get pregnant, so I knew then that I could not be at work for that long. Then I found that I could not get pregnant so we tried for adoption and I needed to be at home most of the time just in case the call came through. We did get the house and for some reason we always got the same sort of house abungalow. it was easy to convert.

That's wonderful to hear. I think it goes both ways, this was meant to be for your family, I've been on both ends, being on the mountain is much better than the valley.

That means things are going to get better, Now all we need to do is to pay the credit card bill for the motel where we were staying at while getting the house fixed up. You would not believe how much it costs to be 3 weeks in a motel.

That's wonderful!! I guess things work out if we do our best and then just wait. I can't think right now of when I had good news when things were all against me. I always had to fight my way through, rescue myself, and when it was all over good things happened. Don't get me wrong, it was all for the best, but good news has never rescued me.

We had to do a lot of phoning. It was a good thing that my husband had a good relationship with the financial adviser and she was the one that got his mother's account transferred into his name. It does tell me something that if you belong to a bank, it is best to have one particular loan or financial adviser rather then go from one to another. oH and I did a lot of praying as well.
