the kindness of strangers amazes me

I am working on some items to sell for the Christmas season, and I needed a piece of ribbon for a project so I had run to walmart. The kids were told to get ready and run out to the car while I grabbed my tennis shoe.

I didn't realize until I got there that only 2 of the kids put their jackets on!

So I ran in and got my stuff and went to leave when Kaitlyn walked up to me and said "here mom from this lady"

she hands me a napkin from mcdonalds and it has written on it "Do your kids need new coats?? Merry Christmas"

and wrapped inside was $300 cash!

I started bawling right there in the store. Couldn't stop.

after all that we have gone through this last month...and knowing we were not going to do much for Christmas....this happens--I feel truly blessed and know that someone was looking out for us.

That story and that lady's kindness amaze me.

I am so glad that she was able to bless you- your family totally deserves it.

Thank you for sharing the story - it's one I'm going to remember for the rest of my life.

I have read and reread this story and it still makes me cry. It couldn't have happened to a nicer family and I am praying a special prayer for your "angel". What an amazing holiday story.
