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?
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 SOBís at the Post Office.
Sincerely yours, Edna

That is just too funny
