The Blessings of Christmas!

My Husband and I have had an amazing Christmas season so far! It started out with very little money, and not so much joy, as the Christmas stress was getting to us both. After analyzing our current financial situation my Husband and I decided that Christmas will have to be very tight for us this year, and that just being with each other on Christmas day will be a great blessing! Then, last week we received a letter in the mail with our name and address on it. We opened it up and out of it fell Christmas Blessings! $100 dollars cash wrapped in a piece of folded white paper, yet no name, and no one to thank for this VERY, VERY generous gift, especially at Christmas time, when money is tight for everyone. So, if this blessing comes from one of my readers, Thank you from the very bottom of mine and my Husbands hearts! Thank you for sharing Christmas with us this year, and filling our home with Christmas cheer! We look forward some day to be able to return this great offering to others who may stand in need!
Have any of my readers been blessed at Christmas time, with either financial help, a new friend, or food baskets? Or has anyone helped someone else and had a great experience with spreading the joy of Christmas? Please share them with me! It is so wonderful to hear about all the giving that goes on this time of year!
