You crown the year with your bounty,and your carts overflow with abundance. Psalm 65:11
by JOHN MITCHELLIt was 1982, sometime late November. I was nine years old. The doorbell rang, and the people on the other side of the door had a big box. Inside that big box was a complete Thanksgiving dinner, and boy, was it good. At nine years old, I didn’t know or understand why these nice people were delivering a box full of food that we enjoyed, shared and appreciated. I didn’t care. All I knew is that it brought my mom to tears, fed my brother and me for over a week, all because of a random act of kindness that my family was blessed to receive. I never forgot that day.
