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.
It read

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. her wallet and came up Each one dug into his or with a few dollars.
By the time he made the rounds, he had collected $95, 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 $5 missing.
I think it might have been one of those buggers at the post office.

Sincerely Edna

Ah, that was cute.
Poor Posties, always getting a bad rap,
when they did such a wonderful thing!
