December 27, 2016:So many Christmas blessings, but the greatest of all is kindness.
Christmas Day I realized that I lost the keys to my car, work, and PO Box sometime between the church service and getting in my mom’s car. More importantly, my library card was attached! And I don’t want to learn a new number. Okay, the gym membership card too, but I only really use that when the power goes out at home and need a shower before work.
I sent e-mails and texts to people from church who might have seen them. I went back across town to church and found them quickly in the parking lot right where the car had been parked. But only a minute later, a fellow Sunnyside couple Jack and Ruth pulled up. They were going to look for my keys! They were prepared with flashlights and warm clothes.
Even though I found them myself, I’m so glad for the kindness of friends!
Moral of the story: There are people on this earth in whom the Christmas Spirit lives in each and every day of their lives.
