Another one from Teresa. (btw, T, thanks for the jokes … I needed these!)
This will warm your heart, especially if you have lost faith in human kindness.
This letter was sent to the principal’s office after an elementary school had sponsored a luncheon for the elderly. An old lady hadreceived a new radio at the lunch as a door prize and was writing to say thank you:
Dear Faculty and Students,
God bless you for the beautiful radio I won at your recent senior citizens’ luncheon. I am 84 years old and live at an Assisted Living Home for the Aged. All of my family has passed away. I am all alone now and its nice to know someone is thinking of me. God bless you for your kindness to an old forgotten lady.
My roommate is 95 and always had her own radio. Before I received this one, she would never let me listen to hers, even when she was napping. The other day, her radio fell off the night stand and broke into a lot of little pieces. It was awful and she was in tears. She asked if she could listen to mine, and I said “Fuck you.”
Thank you for that opportunity,
