On Christmas Eve mom and I went to the drug store to pick up her medication, mom was also coming down with a very bad cold. As we walked we noticed everyone did not look happy no joy, including my mom, we did not know if the family were going to be together this year. As we were leaving the store mom saw a man, very old and he had a small box in his hand, he was asking for change, he looked as if he were homeless, we passed him by, then mom stopped in her tracks looked at me and said we should give him at least a dollar, we had been shopping and that is all we had on us. Mom handed him the dollar and he asked if she would like to see what was in the little box, she said alright, when she looked in there were two little Angel candle holders inside, shinny and new, mom looked up at him and said I am sorry but the dollar was all I had I don't have enough to buy them. The man looked down at me and smiled then he looked at mom and said Merry Christmas they are yours. I was not sure why mom started to cry when she got into the car, she held me and said those little candle holder were the best gift she could ever have gotten, that man had given mom her joy of Christmas back and she learned a lesson that day, don't judge a person on what is on the outside but take the time to look inside.

Merry Christmas

This is an old post, but my mum just read it. She totally agrees about what is important is on the inside. She had an incident in a grocery store where she judged someone by their looks and was very surprised by that person's actions.

So glad that man made your mama's Christmas because that's what it is all about - giving of youself!
