OK, I'll bite! I remember as a kid, going to my grandparent's house on Christmas Day. We opened presents, ate glorious meals prepared in part by all the mothers, listening to Gene Autry on the phonograph and, on the rare occasions there was snow, sledding on the hill behind the house! It was so much fun to be with all the cousins! From somewhere in Middlesex County.ReplyDelete
When I was about 6 years old, Mom took me to the Sat. matinee just before Christmas. After a typical movie experience at that time,ReplyDelete
a double feature, news coverage, previews, cartoon, & serial short, all for $.25, we walked to the bus stop. It was a cold winter late
afternoon, so we went into the toy store at the bus stop. In the window was a beautiful doll house & I fell in love with it. I asked
Mom for it, and she explained it was too expensive. I was so disappointed & nothing in the toy store now was of interest to me. All I could think of was the doll house. Mom tried to interest me in smaller toys but I couldn't get the doll house out of my mind. Mom
finally picked out a black plastic telephone and after she paid for it, we began to walk away from the sales counter. The clerk stopped
Mom & put the doll house on the sales desk. The clerk said this was hers. Mom explained no it wasn't. There was a mistake. The sales
clerk said this was for the little girl. Mom explained again that there was a mistake, she didn't buy it. The clerk explained that a gentleman in the store heard the little girl ask for the doll house & he told the clerk to be sure that little girl got the doll house before she leaves the store. The clerk said he paid for the doll house & left the store. Mom ran outside to try to find the gentleman, but there was no sign of him...I was one happy little girl....I was
so happy to be getting the doll house, but didn't really understand the depth of this gift.
As the years passed, the understanding of this generosity became deeper with each passing year. I still have this doll house and the furniture I ended up getting that Christmas morning. I never found out who this generous gentleman was....but I cherish this doll
What a beautiful story, above!ReplyDelete
Last year, having no plans for the day, I volunteered to help in the kitchen at a local church's community dinner. It was such a wonderful experience!ReplyDelete
Volunteering in soup kitchens is a wonderful idea. Perhaps a list of places can be posted here for anyone who would like to help.ReplyDelete
Please see the article about the Community Christmas Dinner for one suggestion, in the Middletown area. Perhaps others around the state, country and world (we have an international readership) can contribute to your request.Delete
