Tonight we had the boy's Christmas play. I may post some pictures later on facebook. Holly picked the kids up from school and went straight to OSU for an appointment Daniel had. Afterwards, we had to go right to the play, but we needed to eat first.
As we were walking into McDonald's, this man and his wife were in just after us. The man cried out, "Happy meals for everyone!" and I jokingly said, "heh, you're buying?"
We had a chuckle. Then his wife said, "Should we?" he responded, "Why not, it's Christmas."
I responded saying that's fine but it's not necessary, but he insisted. I was like, "ah, I've got 6 children." but he still said it was fine. I couldn't believe it!
The funny thing was we sat there for almost 15 minutes getting the order put together and the woman behind the register got it mixed up and had to add/subtract drinks, etc. finally the woman behind the register asked the couple what they were having. They responded, "Oh, we only need three large iced teas."
Wow! They only had come in there to buy iced tea and left paying almost $30 for another family's meal! Wow, what a blessing. God bless that wonderful couple.
I couldn't let them go away empty-handed. I pulled some free family passes to the Columbus Museum of Art from my jacket and gave them to them.
Lord, thank you for the blessings you give us. Friends have come to our aid this Christmas and strangers, and even anonymous people. We have truly been blessed this year. Thank you Lord, and thank you all for your friendship with us. We appreciate it more than you know.
