This week has been hard, with the usual busyness, the holidays and unexpected financial challenges. I recognize that I am being tested. It started to get me down but I charge forward, I persist, I will win. Love is my shield. Christmas is fast approaching, the greatest story of love. Pooring love out to others. Helping others out turned my despair into hope. My son-in-law called me at 5:15am this week. He was stranded at a work site as his car wouldn’t start. Instead of having our daughter and 2 young kids go and rescue him I went to his aid. It was his battery. We were able to get his car started and get him on his way. I checked later that day to make sure he was able to replace the battery. They did not have the funds to get a new battery. Even though we had just been hit with some unexpected financial challenges I gladly gave them the money to replace their battery. Remember the true reason for Christmas and make everyday Christmas. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
