Good Samaritans

Kids are nestled all snug in their beds...I'll be playing Santa soon.

I have had an unusual number of Good Samaritan experiences during the past few weeks and yet another one today.  My mother's gifts to the kids arrived on Monday, but I didn't know it because the slip was lodged in the mailbox.  I found it at 1:15 today.  I called the post office and the woman said they closed at noon.  THEN she said, "If you come right now. I'll give it to you."  I arrived at 1:30 ( an hour and a half after they closed) to the closed post office.  I called back and the woman opened the doors and got my package!  Thanks to her, my kids can call their Bubba and Pop tomorrow to thank them for the gifts.

This is a time of year when I am trying to remember that even with all the stress of our lives, we really are quite fortunate.  And I want to make sure that I pay all the good deeds forward.

Following from Courtney's blog-glad I stopped by look forward to reading more. We have a daughter that is in middle school that I pulled to homeschool this year-she has been said to have short term memory issues and slight add. I am second guessing that now that I have her home so we are going sometime soon to hopefully have other testing done.
I see the Alamo-was that a visit or are you living in Austin?
We are in Abilene.
Praying for your beautiful family.
Look forward to reading your blog and getting to know you better,

Thanks for visiting my blog! Most of my family lives in Texas, so I drove from Maryland to San Antonio with all the kids last summer! It was quite a trip.
