Journal My Christmas - December 20th


That is one way to describe the events of late. Today, we went back to church because our family had been adopted in light of all our recent issues. We were given a nine pound Costco ham along with other foods and a $25 Walmart gift card. We never have had to be on the receiving end of Christmas help and it is definitely a humbling experience. Feeling that there are others who need help more, we decided to give the gift card to mom's neighbor Dale. He was overwhelmed by the gesture.

More generosity came our way in the form of a WinCo $100 gift card. It arrived in the mail today. What a blessing that those around us are willing to share with our family.

So the unexpected came in the form of assistance. I just pray that we can help others in the future in the same way so many have touched us this holiday season.
