    I received a call this morning from the guidance counselor saying that I need to come to the schools office right away, My first reaction, OH NO What have they done now. So I trudge up to the school, thinking the worst, when I get there they send me to the other office, now that really is a scary thing. When I get there their is a huge bag sitting in front of me. It is full of craft supplies and toys and how to make hair accessories, and kids books on how to knit and clothes, and a note that said, their is more to come. When I asked the office lady who did this, she just smiled and told me a little elf did. The most amazing part is, everything in the bag was on my list to give the kids this year. God is so good.

    This is one of life's little miracles that some grinches refuse to believe still happen in this day and age. All of us need this sometime or another. It is your turn, so smile and enjoy it. Merry Christmas.

    A few years running I had a few women in my department who were really struggling financially and had children smaller than mine so when we got our Christmas bonuses I would run to Wal-Mart and pick up a few stuffed animals for their kids, come in the last working day before the holiday extra early so few people would be at work and anonymously place them on their desks. It didn't cost me much more than $20 but it sure made their lives a bit easier and as far as I know no one ever figured out who Santa was/is.

    Many, many moons ago, I had one of those blessed Christmas's as well. I was trying to raise two little girls by myself, and my job barely covered the basics. I had cut up one of my blue velvet skirts and made my babies a doll dress for their dolls, it was all I could afford. We were sitting in our little one room apartment when the door bell rang, and lo and behold, suddenly there was a Christmas tree, presents and boxes of food. What a celebration we had. My girls tell me they loved the doll dresses the best. We still talk of the joy we shared. It is now my time to play it forward, and we have Christmas Angels we take care of every year. Love needs to be given away, it brings joy into your life. I remember all the Christmas angels from many moons ago who watched over me.
