"A BEAUTIFUL POCONO CHRISTMAS STORY"
One of the greatest gifts I have ever received as a mother was to witness the deed of my youngest son and his wife this past Christmas. Richard and Emily amazed me with their sensitivity and generosity - in my mind, personifying the true meaning of Christmas.
While discussing with each other what each would like for Christmas, they decided to make their Christmas gifts to each other in the way of gifts to our local struggling animal shelter. Their scheme was not a small one. They began by inviting all of their friends and relatives to participate with donations of old blankets, toys and any useful items for the care of animals. They offered to collect and warehouse the donations on their own. The call was heard, and the donations piled in.
They then decided to set aside a certain amount of money, which was considerable, and went on a shopping spree at our local Sam's Club and pet store. The list was long ~ toys, medicines, cleaning supplies, shampoos, conditioners, dry food supplies, wet food supplies, vitamins, chews, grooming aids, and many more varied and sundries items.
There living room was full; a large portion of their basement was filled. Twenty loads to the truck, and they were off on Christmas Eve to deliver their red sled full of goodies. I hope your hearts will be as warmed as mine.
