Saint James Garfield and the Taxidermied Bunch

This holiday season was filled with challenges. As they usually are, but this particular season has been tough because we moved to Big Bear, which is a resort town. The winter season is great, but brutal economic wise for the town folks like myself. Having been laid off from my gig I was already making plans to have Christmas in January, which is when I expected a check.
See, I was hired for a job but it took 2 weeks to start and then another 2 weeks for me to receive a first paycheck. Since my kids are little, I figured they would understand. The important thing is that we're together and healthy.  Right?

Well the generous spirit of Saint James Garfield appeared. On a whim I created an Amazon wishlist and commented. Now, I didn't imagine what would happen, or even expect anything. I was just doing my best for my 3 girls.

What happened next, blew my mind. Slowly, the items on my wishlist began being purchased. Not just one or two, but several!  I broke down crying.  Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine my children receiving anything, or even that much!

I am so grateful for the Secret (& not so secret) Santas!

I am dedicated to paying it forward,  slowly and as I'm able.

Thank you!

May this year bring miracles, kindness, and joy into your life.
