this season of thankfulness we asked our readers "What did someone do for
you that made you feel special?" As you will see, it's not the presents,
but the presence of a friend that encourages us to keep pushing forward when we
wonder if we will make it through this life. . . Do something special for someone
today. They'll never forget it!|
chiropractor came to my home and worked on me without charge. -Jerry Ann H., FL
9-year-old daughter made me a cup of hot tea when I had a horrendous migraine.
I hadn't even asked her for anything. -Beth F., Singers Glen, VA
my father passed away a friend turned up at my house with a teddy bear as big
as she was. Then she took me out for a "mystery journey"-her treat.
First, to her hairdresser to have my hair done; then out for lunch. -Carole B.,
I wasn't feeling well was my four-year-old granddaughter, Rianna, cuddled me and
wiped my head with a wet cloth; I was on the floor after collapsing and being
sick from the overloading my liver with medication. She tucked me into bed afterward
and held my hand. My sister wasn't able to help; she hadn't seen me having "a
fit" before and was afraid, so Rianna also comforted her by telling her not
to worry, she would look after us both. -Penny T., U.K.
father paid a cleaning service to come into my home and clean everything,
top to bottom, in and out. It really gave me a lift to have everything
clean and it was so much easier to keep up after that. -Kim D.
said she didn't know how I felt but she cared. -Julie M.
friend from church called and said she was coming over to help me. When she got
there she wanted to start cleaning, but I told her I wanted her to sit down with
me. She did and I cried out my heart to her and she held me and let me cry for
over an hour. It felt as if Jesus Himself was holding me. I have never forgotten
what she did. She still comes and checks on me and has taken me to doctors' appointments.
I love her because of her Christ-like nature. -Tanya
