View Full Version : A Christmas story to warm your heart....

There was this fellow who worked for the Post Office whose job it was
to process all the mail that had illegible addresses.

One day a letter came to his desk, addressed to God in very shaky
handwriting. He thought, "Oh boy, better open this one and see what it's all

So he opened it and read: "Dear God, I am an 83 year old widow living
on a very small pension. Yesterday someone stole my purse. It had $100.00
in it, which was all the money I had until my next pension check. Next
Sunday is Christmas, and I had invited two of my friends over for dinner.
Without that money, I have nothing to buy food with. I have no family
to turn to, and you are my only hope. Can you please help me?"

The Postal worker was touched, and went around showing the letter to
all the others. Each of them dug into their wallets and came up with a few
dollars. By the time he made the rounds, he had collected $96.00,
which they put into an envelope and sent over to her. The rest of the day,
all the workers felt the warm glow of the kind thing they had done.

Christmas came and went. A few days later another letter came from the
old lady again addressed to God. All the workers gathered around while
the letter was opened.

It read, "Dear God, How can I ever thank you enough for what you did
for me? Because of your gift of love I was able to fix a glorious dinner for
my friends. We had a very nice day and I told my friends of your wonderful gift.
By the way, there was $4 missing. I think it must have been those
thieving jerks at the Post Office."

Seems like I read a mexican version of this story back in high school. About a poor mexican farmer who needed 100 pesos to pay off some debt or something.

I read a version of this, in the newspaper, about a guy from Israel; I had assumed it was true.
