Well, on Tuesday, Pastor Ed came over to the house. Happen to brave Chaos Manor when all the kids were out of school, their friends were over, and the littles were still here. Brave man. He came over to wish us a Happy Thanksgiving and deliver a card to us. Pastor Ed said it was a gift from an anonymous person. He said they did not want to be known. I didn't open it up then. Was just enjoying the company & the chaos and well, one of the littles fell on her face & I needed to tend to that. Decided to open it up later thinking it was our first Merry Christmas card of the year. Christmas card indeed! I opened the card and read it and was just taken a back that someone felt that way about our family. Cared enough to put things in words. Glad I didn't open it when the Pastor was here or he would have thought I was just a blubbering mess. Here is what was printed on the front of the card & then inside:
Anyhow, I just really wanted to say how incredibly blessed we were by this gift. I know we just did a food drive but it is not the same thing as everyone contributed to the food drive. I just played a simple part of organizing it and buying some things for it. I really want to one day be able to be the one playing secret Santa to a family. For them to really feel the way we feel. What an incredible gift on so many levels. There are truly Angels among us! We promise to pay it forward in the future.
