Among the pile of Junk Mail and the early Christmas cards came an envelope from France today .
I opened it and got the best surprise ever. Tucked inside was 50 Euros. I am still so surprised when I write 50!,, Not a 5,10 or 20 Euro Note. But 50 Euros!
And the most generous,wonderful lady who sent it asked me to put it towards the fund to help the women in Almeria who are exploited and live in terrible conditions.
Now, I have never actually met this wonderful lady but we consider ourselves cyber sisters. She belongs to the charity knitting thread I love to be a part of.
We have " known" each other for about five years and one day I would like to meet her and give her the biggest hug.
I feel quite overwhelmed by such a generous gesture. Amongst this somewhat materialistic time of the year this lovely lady dipped so generously into her purse and thought of others.
It made my day and filled me with Joy and Hope!
I am going to keep that feeling close to me every day throughout this Christmas Season.
I hope something filled you with joy today !
