Are you a secret Santa or an angel?

I have no words to adequately describe how I felt when my doorbell rang and I answered the door to be greeted by the sweetest lady with the most contagious smile. She was holding one of the most beautiful baskets I had ever seen. Although I had never seen or met her before, she knew my name, and proceeded to hand me the basket full of very special gifts. I asked in sheer disbelief, "This is for me? Who is it from? Who ARE you? Are you a Secret Santa?"

I felt sure that she had the wrong address, yet she knew MY name. She told me that there was a card enclosed, and, yes, she was a Secret Santa. She left as quickly as she came. As I started to unwrap the contents of the basket, I realized that she was more than a Secret Santa; she was an Angel of God who came to visit me at a time when I needed it most.

This past year has been very tumultuous for me, emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually. There were days when I did not know if I would live to see tomorrow, much less the end of the day. Altough I know that I have come a long way in a year, I am still struggling to find a sense of peace both inside and out.

When my Angel arrived, I had just experienced a situation that had me feeling very sad and lowly, and doubting everything. And it was at that very moment when it arrived...a gift to me sent straight from God.

Whoever you are, I want you to know, it feels really special to be loved and cared about by others.

You will never truly know how much your act of kindness has meant to me. I look forward to the days when I can bless others as you have blessed me.

My heartfelt blessing to all of you,
Love, Anne
