This has not been a good year in Rochester for work for me(enough said) On Monday December 20th 2010 I heard a knock on the door, I opened the door and young very chipper smiling beautiful Italian woman 24-30 looked at me and asked, are you Dave Carlson, I said yes, she said I have a package for you. I said who is it from, she looked at the box and said it says Santa, I was like huh? She said I dont know, it seems to be anonymous. I thought a second and said, well who are you. She said nothing but, I am just supposed to give you this package. I said, Well do you know who gave the package to you to give to me. She said I don't know I'm just supposed to give you this package. And she handed it to me and said Merry Christmas and walked to her car. I went inside and opened the box and there was a plastic snack Jar with a lid completely taped up and when I looked inside the top all I seen was $$$$$$. I removed all the tape unscrewed the top and emptied it out on the living room floor and sorted all the bills. $112 in one dollar bills, $35 in $5 bills, $20 in ten's, four $20 bills A $50 bill and 8.73 in loose change. In this Jar there was $310.73. My son Zack age 14 came home from school and saw the box and said, Hey Dad whats this, I said It's a box. He started rustling through the papers and unwrapped a book called "Christmas Jars" I have 3 kids I am raising alone. I'm not saying I was desperate for extra money for the Holidays, but I put it to good use. I thank whoever it is that sent me a Christmas Jar and wish I could thank in person.
My kids, Sara 17, Zack 14 and Zoe 9, thank you also. who ever sent this Jar to me, just know that it is greatly appreciated.
