Every year we have our pre xmas clean out and garage sale and put the money in a jar for christmas fun. The older three 16, 14,13 came to me and asked very excitedly can we do something different with the money this year? I asked what would they like to do? The said they were watching the news and an old lady in a suburb not far from us had her house burn to the ground and wanted to give it too her. I can we give her all the new photo albums and frames we just bought? On one condition. I asked what was that? THey replied we don't want our names on it because our if friends found out they would tease us. So I called a local charity to pick it all up. It is the best Christmas ever.!!!!

Your children have very good hearts. This is a fine reflection on thier upbringing. you have raised three fine children. I like that they wanted to remain annonymous also. The true spirit of Christmas is in the giving of yourself to others and your children reflect that very well.

Thank you for your response. It was all the more happier because we weren't going to have much of a christmas due to high mortgage and car repairs.
