Santa Is Sooo Busy!!!!
I want to share a true story with you. These events took place at 7:30 A.M. this morning.
As many of you know my youngest daughter who lives in another state and town recently lost her job. She is a single Mom to our three Grandchildren. Right before she lost her job her youngest child"s teacher sent home list requesting items for the children's school Christmas Party. My daughter signed up to bring a package of juice boxes. ( cost around $2.00).
Here is the scene. She goes through all of her pockets digging up her nickles, dimes and pennies and finds just enough to get the juice boxes. With her young son in tow heads to Kroger's to buy them.
They are in line with the juice boxes and she is counting out her pennies to pay for them. My Grandson asks for a candy bar. My daughter explains to him that they are getting the juice for his party and they do not have enough money to buy candy. Behind them in line is an older man hearing all of this he hands my daughter $15.00. My daughter tells him she cannot take his money. He tells her is she does not take it he is going to give it to her son. That it is CHRISTmas and this is no big deal and gives the money to my Grandson telling him to give it to his Mommy.
My daughter begins to cry and tells him it is a big deal. She told him because of his gift she could buy milk for her children today. Then the man begins to tear up and all those around are visibly touch by what they are seeing.
My friends Santa does exist. He exists in the form of LOVE!!!!
CHRISTmas Blessings to each of you!!!!!
