a great big thanks/ shocked/ surprised

i dont even know where to begin. i received a envelope in todays mail with the biggest shock ever. i dont think anyone has ever done anything like this for me before i nearly fell off my chair when i opened up the card and saw what was in it. i really dont want to reveal what it was but my jaw nearly hit the floor. this has to be the biggest act of kindness that anyone has ever done for me and shocking to me that someone would do this and not reveal who they are. inside was a very simple note that said "gina, hope this helps make your holidays happier with a smiley face drawn in it. i am so touched by this that i cried for a half hour. i always say there a special and kind people everywhere and who ever my secret santa is i just to let them know i will never as long as i live forget this and hope that someday i can do the same for someone in my situtation. i am truely and honestly blown away by this. i really dont know how to say thank you. i really and truely dont know who this is.
sincerely
gina

I'm smiling just thinking about this. Thank you to whoever did this for Gina.
Gina, I know that you will pay it forward when you are able.
Enjoy the holidays!

What a nice thing to have done. A real secret santa. That makes the holidays even more fun. The holiday spirit is alive and well at RHSS. Kind of reminds me of my favorite holiday movie with Jimmy Stewart, "It's a Wonderful Life"..Wishing all a safe, happy, love filled holiday season.

I had to get a tissue. RHSS is truly a wonderful place. Happy Holidays to all!!

Quotes from, "It's a Wonderful Life".

Henry Travers (Clarence): One man's life touches so many others, when he's not there it leaves an awfully big hole.


Henry Travers (Clarence): Remember George, No man is a failure who has friends.

Henry Travers (Clarence): You see, George, you really have had a wonderful life.

Love to all......

Where is my tissues??
