We don’t have that many friends, but the ones we do have are good friends. This Christmas we experienced the generosity of several of these good friends. Knowing our situation, family of 7 with the breadwinner currently unemployed, these friends confirmed to us that it is a wonderful life!
One couple gave us a $50 grocery gift card, and then gave each of our 6 kids a $25 Kohl’s gift card! My second oldest daughter’s employers, who we have gotten to know and become friends with, gave us a $150 grocery gift card! On Christmas Eve a fully cooked turkey was dropped on our doorstep. This was a gift from another family who was originally just a professional acquaintance. Now we are good friends. Our neighbors are taking all of us to Pizza Hut in a few weeks. Recently, we’ve had trouble with our van overheating. My very best friend’s husband spent 2 days of his vacation working on our van, and is planning to come back and work on our other car as well.
Merry Christmas Bedford Falls, it is a wonderful life!
