Real Christmas spirit

On Christmas Eve my daughter and I set out to do our “last minute” errands which entailed going to at least six different stores. When we returned home, I realized that I had lost a very sentimental piece of jewelry that was handed down to me through my family. Needless to say, I was heartsick, and after scouring my house and vehicle, felt that it was gone forever.

Well, my children decided that giving up was not an option and proceeded to back track all of our stops. After coming up short at three to four stops, they called the manager of Food Lion in Camden who informed them that an anonymous person had turned it in to him! I realized in that instant that this is what the Christmas season is all about. It is not the physical things that we receive, rather it is the gifts from the heart that truly matter.

In this cynical world we live in it is so easy to forget that there is so much goodness in people. Although I do not know who did this wonderful act of kindness, I will forever be grateful. Thank you for making my Christmas one of the best ever!
