Dear God:

Sometimes something arrives that I can not help sharing with you. This one brings the spirit of Christmas with a slight twist, and will hopefully make you smile.

There was a man who worked for the Post Office whose job 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 payment.

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, 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 pounds.

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 might have been those bastards at the post office!!!

Sincerely, Edna

    Ha ha ha! I am FINALLY following you, Barbara! You make me smile every time I come here. And this joke is one that will make my friend A. (no, not THAT A.–the other one : ) laugh. She is always telling ME jokes, and I rarely have one for her, because she’s 89 and never forgets one. I’ll get her with this one!

        I just returned to WP after almost 2 mos. away, and saw that the new Stats page asked “Do you like WP? What would you improve?” I told them that Follows get handled inconsistently, or dropped. Who knows? If they hear it from enough people…

        Thank you.I will change one word if that is OK. Bastards to buzzards. I have an Anglican priest that is a follower and I’m pretty sure that he might be offended. I hope that I can change the wording if not I’ll post it with your http at the top .I just have to see what I can do with it.

        Thanks so much,

        Thanks Barbara, I was trying to work it out. Of course, cackle out loud is a lovely one, and I could hear your tinkle behind your sister’s outburst!
