Patience rewarded

17 Mar

I have been patient.

I have tried not to think about it.

I tried not to check.

But I can’t pretend I haven’t been a little anxious since I received (and responded to) the letter from the IRS.

I checked again a few days ago and saw this message:

I was almost giddy reading it. I have to admit that part of me, a fairly large part, still worried the IRS letter was masterful plan by identity thieves. You hear about things like this all the time and wonder how people could be so gullible. I worried I was one of those gullible people.

On Wednesday morning, I saw this message:

 I checked my account immediately. Sweet relief swept over me as I saw the scheduled deposit. I said a little prayer of thanks, worry lifted from my shoulders.

    I hate that feeling and know it well. The anxious feeling of wondering who may steal my tax return!

    In this modern day of technology and identify theft, what a good feeling it is to know that you have your tax refund and breath a sign of relief.

    Yay! Gotta love what feels like free money! (Even though we logically know it is not!) 🙂

    Aren’t taxes such “a thing”?!? Why do they have to be so stressful? I do love TurboTax. I do not love taxes. I suppose that is how it is intended to be. Glad for your lightened load.
