Today I got to meet the lady in charge of helping the family I spoke about on the 4th. We gathered in her dining room to put together a game plan for the children's Christmas. Even a week ago, they were told they would not have a Christmas. In a week's time, their mortgage has been caught up ... their electricity paid up .. the local sprint store donated 6 months worth of service for them .. and gift cards for grocery stores and the generosity of everyone has been amazing.
They have so much non-perishables that they are completely overwhelmed and don't know where to put it all.
I was blessed to be around compassionate people today. What a blessing.
We split up the wish list for the children and my new friend will pass on the word to those that still want to help about other things that the children are wanting.
We're having a huge "wrapping party" (not to be confused with a rapping party) right before Christmas and I am looking forward to it.
