    Letter to God

    There was a man who worked for the Post Office whose job it was to

    process all the mail that had illegible addresses. One day, a letter

    came addressed in a shaky handwriting to "God" with no actual address.

    He thought he should open it to see what it was about.

    The letter read: Dear God, I am an 83 year old widow, living on a very

    small pension. Yesterday someone stole my purse. It had $100 in it,

    which was all the money I had until my next pension check. Next Sunday

    is Christmas, and I had invited two of my friends over for dinner.

    Without that money, I have nothing to buy food with. I have no family

    to turn to, and you are my only hope. Can you please help me?

    Sincerely, Edna

    The postal worker was touched. He showed the letter to all the other

    workers. Each one dug into his or her wallet and came up with a few

    dollars. By the time he made the rounds, he had collected $96, which

    they put into an envelope and sent to the woman. The rest of the day,

    all the workers felt a warm glow thinking of Edna and the dinner she

    would be able to share with her friends. Christmas came and went. A few

    days later, another letter came from the same old lady to God. All the

    workers gathered around while the letter was opened.

    It read, "Dear God, How can I ever thank you enough for what you did

    for me? Because of your gift of love, I was able to fix a glorious dinner

    for my friends. We had a very nice day and I told my friends of your

    wonderful gift. By the way, there was $4 missing. I think it must have

    been those SOB’s at the Post Office.

    Sincerely yours, Edna

    That is just too funny
