Day 4: Holiday Blessings


Today is the first day I cried tears of joy for what you were all able to accomplish. A single father of two, who coaches multiple sports and works multiple jobs to make ends meet was our recipient.


I will never forget the first time I met Rick. Our sons happened to be in the same class together. I was attending Back to School Night and as we were walking out of the classroom his son held the door open for me and waited for me to exit the classroom. I was in awe of the eight-year-old gentleman that held the door open for me. It was Rick’s son. When I complimented Rick on his son he was incredibly humble.

Being a dad is what makes Rick the most proud and he puts everything he has into being a good father and provider for his family. His kids are truly an example of what a great father he is. They are hard workers, dedicated athletes, and bright scholars.

This past year has been a bit tougher and two of his friends wanted to help ease the stress for him. They were able to do that tonight when they delivered our goodies; donations you helped provide. When I talked to one of them after the delivery tonight and heard how touched Rick was I teared up. Knowing that our gift made such a big difference for someone and will make their holiday easier is such a blessing.

Rick, you are a man of value. Everything you do, you do with the best intentions and honor. We wish you and your family a very, happy holiday.

Peace and Love,

Michelle and the Holiday Cheer Elves

    1. Thank you, Gale for helping make it possible. Thank you for reading along and thank you so much for your kind words. I can not believe what we were able to pull off this year. Amazing! I am still in awe of what we are able to do for some of the people. It is truly a blessing to be able to share in this experience that takes a village to make happen. It is such a hopeful activity and we need good and hope right now more than we have needed it in a long time.
