John & Diane Cain of Boyce, LA came to pick up the playhouse today. (I took a picture of them). They bought a ticket this past Friday night during the Family Playhouse show, "It's a Wonderful Life".
I think we can be proud that the spirit of Christmas is more than money, more than giving and receiving. It is love and compassion."
Later the same day, my husband saw the playhouse in the back of a truck. It pulled up to the Target Store the same time we did.
As the Cain's approached the front of the store where we were standing, I spoke with them again. Their smiles beamed cheerfully.
John Cain needed to find a place to wash his hands, because he had just finished changing a stranded woman's tire.
I called him "A Good Samaritan".
He said, "Well, she just looked so pitiful, I had to help her."
This is a story worth telling and retelling. This family living in the midst of tragedy gave of themselves to those in need. I was blessed to be a part of their lives, even for just a moment.
