Let me start by explaining briefly that we were in a time of deep financial struggle. Abe had to take a very low paying job at a call center, and I was scrambling for ways to make an extra dollar here and there.
I made the kids a lot of egg sandwiches with home-made bread because that was all I could afford. Sometimes Abe's boss and co-workers at the call-center would buy cookies from me at a dollar a bag. Abe was so cute to make a sign and walk up to each of his co-workers enticing them to buy my treats.
Once, Abe's boss bought 2 trays of cinnamon rolls from me for a team meeting at $20.00 a tray!! That was a very happy day. I hugged his boss the next time I saw him because I knew he was trying to help our family. :-)
...but that was only the beginning. God had an even bigger miracle in store.
One afternoon, I was standing in the driveway watching the children as they played in the cul-de-sac. As I stood there, a big car and another smaller car pulled up blocking our driveway. They were obviously there to see us. I recognized one of the drivers as someone I had met only once before. He informed me that he was merely delivering something from an anonymous giver. Both of the vehicles were filled to the brim with boxes!
