An Unexpected Gift

January 11, 2017


I experienced a little birthday miracle yesterday.

Had to share.

I was standing with the kids in the Wal-Mart checkout line after going out to eat with family for my birthday dinner. An elderly Navy veteran walked right up to me and put $40 into my hands. He said that he saw the kiddos, and still had some Christmas spirit left in him…so he wanted me to have it.

I tried to gracefully decline. He didn’t let me.

I thanked him twice. Once for the generous gift. And once for his sacrificial service for our country.

Truth be told, I should have been the one giving him a handful of cash.

So inspired by his example.

And so thankful for his unexpected birthday gift.

It is one that I will not soon forget. ♡
