A True Story from my book Rescue the Stories Book Two
My friend called me and asked if I would like a temporary
job where she worked.
She said, “They need some simple research done, and with
your math expertise, you would be a good choice.”
“Sure,” I told her, “Give me directions how to get there,
and when to show up.”
This was a strange request, but I could understand that my
friend was occupied doing her own job and the Senior Accounts Payable person

error.God was gracious and it did not
take me very long, and there it was - - big as you please, or should I say
small as you please the ten cents worth of error.
In life there are times, when it is easier to sluff off the
small stuff and try to let it go, and other times there is a need to search for the
error and make a hard call to fix it correctly.
