Humbling Experience

Please forgive me for not posting earlier.  With Christmas come and gone, being sick, re-vamping the store and dealing with my internet problems …I just had not been able to.

As many of you might have read, the week before Christmas I made a weekend journey to Cuidad Acuna Mexico to make a very special delivery. I don’t know how to explain it, other then to say it was one of the most touching and humbling experiences.

As we traveled on this journey I felt a great sense of peace and excitement  to be able to complete this very important task that God had put in my heart to accomplish.  The whole trip was a huge blessing.

The blessings started the night before leaving when my cousin brought over 2 huge boxes of food for me to give to anyone in need. I was so thankful and moved by such a kind and  thoughtful gesture.

I was also moved by all of you that stopped by the store after reading my blog and are willing to help and all my blogger buddies that have also offered to take a hand in making this possible again next year. I appreciate you all so much. 

The biggest blessing to me this holiday season was seeing the children receiving these gifts little faces light up. Everybody was so genuinely thankful  for  us being there. It was truly magical and I thank God for electing me to experience it.
