A Christmas Angel

I have to tell you about something that happened this week. It makes me realize there are still good people in this world! A friend came over to bring some goodies that she didn't use in a house she was decorating. That was coool in itself, but she left a gift bag under our tree. When she left I checked it out to see her Christmas card, because she always makes the cutest ones of her boys. There was another envelope in there made out to my DH and myself, so I opened it....there were 2 American Express gift cards in there and it was enough to buy Christmas gifts for all the ones we needed to! I was shocked and kept looking at the envelope making sure it had our name on it! I showed DH and he was like, "Whuuuuuuuuuuuut????" I called my friend and told her I had to get the wrong envelope and she needed to come get it! Of course her phone went straight to voice mail and a few minutes later she called back and was just giggling. She said it was ours to spend on whatever we wanted. She has a client that does this for families every year and she had asked her if she knew of any families affected by Ike and that she wanted to help. I am so moved by people like this and never thought I would be on the receiving end. I am humbled and so appreciative. It was wonderful to get the gifts we needed to and not worry about January bills. She was truly our Christmas angel!
