Saturday morning (12/22/12) we woke to find a box on our front stoop. We opened the box and inside was a wrapped present. We were completely baffled as to what it might be. Upon unwrapping the present we came face to face with a true Christmas Miracle! It was a Christmas Jar filled with hundreds and hundreds of dollars in bills and coins, and the Christmas Jars book. We were, and still are, completely overwhelmed by such a generous surprise.
Obviously, we do not know who left it, but rest assured, we have already started a new family tradition of collecting coins all year in a Christmas Jar for someone else next Christmas.
We had never heard of Christmas Jars, but it has changed our Christmas, and our lives.
To whomever loved our family enough to Bless us, we are deeply thankful and overcome with gratitude. You made Christmas possible for our kids, and gave us Peace.
Our backstory, we lost our business, and income, in 2009. We have struggled with lengthy unemployment, we lost our home to foreclosure this year, and I am once again unemployed. We have 3 of the best sons in the world, and they were facing a present-less Christmas.
God Bless the Christmas Jar, and God Bless the people who anonymously left that Miracle on our door stoop. We Will Pay It Forward ...
