blessings.

Blessings are overflowing.

My mom has a really good friend who is a single mom. She doesn't make much money and struggles to buy anything for her kids for Christmas, much less anything extravagant. Her kids don't even think to ask for much because they know she can't buy it for them. 

There were some people at a church who were going to sponsor a family for Christmas. It didn't work out, and my mom was disappointed, so she decided to do something about it. She put a status on facebook asking people to donate money, or clothes, or anything they could to give this family a good Christmas. 

Well, let me tell you, these people delivered. People gave money for her to go shopping, they gave clothes, shoes, anything they could think of. The kids are even able to get the one thing they asked for. There was a huge pile of gifts for this family. People even bought gifts for the mom. They also brought gift cards, and after shopping for everyone, there was still money left over. 

This family has no idea who provided any of the stuff. My mom didn't buy anything for them, she only gathered everything, went shopping with the donated money, and helped the mom shop. 

My mom and I sat and wrapped the gifts people brought and felt so blessed. It was such an experience to be able to see this mom pick up the gifts and know that everything was taken care of for Christmas. When she came to pick up the gifts, she cried. She saw how much people cared about her and her family because she deserved it more than anyone. 

If you ever get the chance to help someone that needs, please do it, because it will bless you more than anything.
