Josh came home tonight and found an envelope on our front door, simply addressed to "The (our last name)." He walked in and asked me if anyone had knocked and I said that I hadn't heard anything. I assumed it was another Christmas card, much like the many wonderful ones we have received from family and friends.
However, it wasn't like any other Christmas card, that we have ever received. Inside the envelope was a beautiful Christmas card and $100! It was simply signed, "Merry Christmas! God Bless!"
Because of my pregnancy complications, I was in and out of the hospital a lot before Presley's birth. This means that for a couple months I haven't really been working a lot and since her early arrival, I haven't been working at all. Because of that and the medical bills that fill our mailbox daily, money has been really tight.
We haven't told anyone about our financial issues, so we don't know where it could have come from or how someone knew. Now, we don't know who to thank, either. All I can hope is that this amazing person reads this and knows how much we appreciate their gift.
Josh and I discussed it and we feel so incredibly blessed, that we will be taking half of it and giving it to another family, that we know could really use it. It's not money that we planned on, so it's not money that we will miss...and knowing that another family will feel as loved and blessed as we do now, is what Christmas is all about.
