My mom's luck...

Is changing for good!
I want to tell you the story...

I guess I need to start with...

This picture. It was taken last Christmas Eve. Those are the presents I got. And some of my mom's too. Can you see that little box at the top of the picture??

OK. This is a better picture of it. It is a Chocolate Truffle.

Well. My mom is not a big fan of chocolate so, she was not really excited about this present. She took it to our house and she left it on the desk until 10 days ago when she was going to have her dental surgery. She put it into her purse thinking on giving it to her Dentist's assistant who is very nice with my mom. But... she forgot to give it to her. When my mom went back for the check up... she forgot it again.
Today morning, while she was cleaning our house, she wanted to eat something sugary. Since my mom thinks that if she is going to get fat... it will be for something salty, she does not have candies at home but then.... she remembered the chocolate truffle in her purse! And there she goes looking for it... She was almost drooling while she was taking away the ribbon and when she opened it...

This is what she found!! Lots of money!

She was so surprised that she forgot about her sugar craving.
It was until she counted the money when she knew where it came from!It was my grandma's present for her!
Do you remember when my mom bought her treadmill?? Well. She told my grandma that she wanted to buy it but she did not had enough money. My grandma told her to buy it with the credit card and that she would contribute with a part of the payment but that could be until Christmas. My mom appreciated that and she bought the treadmill.
Then... Christmas came. And my mom did not get a present from my grandma (or so she thought!) which was very strange but of course my mom was not going to ask to my grandma about it. It was until today when she told the whole story and the only thing I heard from my grandma was a... "You idiot" to my mom!

So, what do you think?
I really believe her luck is changing... for good!
Now, she needs to buy a real Chocolate Truffle for Bertha and not forget to give it to her next time!


Have a good night

How khool!

Maybe my mom needs to look through her things and figure out what might be khausing her bad lukhk!


Stella said...

What a good story, Lorenza! It was very lucky she didn't give the "truffle" away!


Bobby said...

What a good job your mum forgot to give it away. I bet your Granma thought your mum was awful for not thanking her.

Unknown said...

This is a good and funny story, with a very happy ending :-)

See ..... its good to eat chocolate!

Martha said...

What a great story - thank goodness the truffle was not given away!

Wow Lorenza, what a wonderful story! There is nothing like a surprise like that...and a belated, non-expected Christmas gift.
You look as cute as ever. Thanks again for all you guys do for us.

what a great surprise....wakakaka.... :)
good thing she didn't give the chocolates away, I guess next time you'll have to sniff all the gifts first Lorenza :)

Brindusa (Brinda Dasha) said...

Wow, that's quite a story, a real luck.
I remember a similar story I saw on TV news about a lady who cleaned the house and cast away an old pair of boots. She had no idea that her mom hided the family's savings there. A gypsy women, who use to hunt for "useful" things in the garbage, found the boots and took it home. You can imagine everyone's surprise when they found 50.000 Eu in the boots. At the end they had to give the treasure back while the Police track down the lost fortune.

1000 Goldens said...

Wow, that is the best story! I'm so happy your Mom found the candy and that her luck has gotten so much better. Grandma is funny...

koko said...

That's a good story, Lorenza... luckily your mom did not give the money truffle to the assistant else it would be double 'painful' visit to the dentist.

Licks, hero

Naqvee said...

she very lucky... Its so funny and a lesson for us.. to check every box.. who knows you might have money in it


Golden Woofs! SUGAR said...

Woof! Woof! It is good that your mom did not give it away. Imagine that ... that's a good lesson to learn ... "rethink well when you plan to re-gift a gift." You just never know. Hope you're mom is using the treadmill. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

My Mind's Eye said...

Lorenza that is one lucky story for sure....and a funny one. Thank goodness your Mom did not give the truffles to the dental assistant or anyone else for that matter. HA

Lorenza I think that Santa Paws was watching out for your mom. Hey you have a YapStop computer just like mine.
I sure did enjoy Indiana's party yesterday. I'm soooo glad that you got to meet my Ruby and Penny. I'm glad that no one got any stains on your pretty dress.

Bijou said...

Hi Lorenza,

That is a funny story. My mom is shocked to hear your mom doesn't like chocolate! Maybe now she will.


kalyxcorn said...

Mack said...

Oh My Dog. I think your mom needs to go buy some lottery tickets! Her luck is changing for sure!

River said...

Lorenza!! That is a funny story! Great happy ending. We are so glad your mom has some extra money. It was a good thing she cut up those pajamas!!

love & wags,

sadermaxx said...

Hi Lorenza

That was really good luck, we are glad your mom's luck is changing for the good.
And you know if your mom has a little extra money that could lead to more treats or a new ball or maybe a new toy, well you get the idea.

The Gang at LLB said...

What a great story!! Your Mama's luck is changing for sure!!


Oscar the Beagle! said...

Ah you see Lorenza this could not happen to my mam as my mam says she is plagued by a really bad affliction - she is a chocoholic so my mam would hsave found the money really quickly lol cos she can't resist the chocloate!

I hope you are right though and your mom's luck is changing for the better x

Jans Funny Farm said...

That is such a funny story, Lorenza. It wouldn't be funny if your mom had actually given "the truffle" away, though. Did your grandma wonder why your mom never said thanks? We're glad something really good happened for your mom and you.

Yes, in Georgia we cats and dogs can get a one year rabies shot or a three year. Our vet offers the choice and Jan chooses the three year shot for each of us for several reasons, including the fact that some vets give the three year shot and call it a one year, which in her opinion is a negligent vet practice.

Oh my goodness Lorenza, does mom know you are telling us this story? BOL

WOW! Can you imagine if she had given that to her dentist?!!? Crazy!
I love the pix of you at the computer!

Oreo said...

Oh LOrenza,
That is a funny story. It sure is a good thing that she didnt give it away, could you imagine their faces when they would have opened it??

Note to self: Open all candy from now on!!! lol


TINA said...

Siempre hay espacio para la buena suerte!!!!

Unknown said...

Of course, Lorenza. I've been telling you all along. The good days are here! Very funny story. Your mom's dentist would have been very happy. But what do you know really about treadmills? I know my momma abuses them, they are loud, and worse yet, she blasts her awful music while she's on it. After she gets off, she's all salty and Frankie attacks her with her tongue. I just thought you'd need some information.

TwoSpecialWires said...

Oh our dogness! What an amazing good ending! We kept thinking of our own endings as we read (like ... Lorenza found the box, opened it, at the truffles, got sick, but ... thankfully .... recovered.) NEVER did we guess the actual ending.

We LOVE your Moma's new good luck! And now we are going to go check and see if we have any as yet unopened Christmas pressies!

Daisy said...

C said...

I don't know Lorenza.... your Mom came very close to being VERY unlucky. When you give away a present to some one else, we call that "re-gifting." Some people think that you should not do it. Now we know one reason why.

Teddy Bear said...

That is SO very cool! What a great surprise. I bet that made your Mom's day.:) Your Grandma is so funny! I can't believe she didn't tell your Mom to open her box of truffles.

PS Look at all of those Christmas presents you spoiled girl!

Deefor said...

What a lucky story! Good thing she didn't give them away! Nice Grandma.

Taffy said...

Tell your Mom to blame it on the pain medication..... I guess that won't work, huh? She wasn't taking the pain medication at Christmas. Hmmmm.
Good thing she found it!

Life With Dogs said...

You are exactly right - it certainly is, and you make a strong argument for patience. :)

Alli and Frankie said...

Oh my goodness! Things are looking up! So happy for your mommy, Lorenza! :)

Mochi and Bali said...

Cool! I'm glad your mom found it! :)


Unknown said...

What an amazing story! I am SO happy that your mother didn't throw the box of chocolates away - can you imagine??? Now I'm going to go open every box of soap, candy, etc to see if I missed anything!

Was your Grandma angry that your Mom had never thanked her for the Christmas present?

I love it!

More dresses for Lorenza!!!

Your pal,

Marg said...

That is a super story Lorenza. I bet your Mom was so glad to find that money and so upset because she didn't find it earlier. But the money will work no matter when you get it. Have a great week.

Fred said...

Sierra Rose said...

Wow, good thing she forgot to give the candy away!


Hi Lorenza,

Well it just goes to show that good things do happen to good people if they eat right kind of food!

Chocolate is good for humans but not us doggies, right?

Hi, Lorenza -

Thank you for signing the petition.

Love -

I like the story about the chocolate truffle and the money. What a relief your Mom finally opened up the candy instead of giving it away!
