Financial constraints shrieked in my ear, “You have to sell the house now!” It was a down market, and we had only one prospective buyer. And he didn’t have enough money to meet the reduced price. But Craig Bell, our agent, kept at it. Before you know it, the buyer’s father-in-law came through with the difference. We had a sale!
Who was grateful? Craig Bell was grateful! That happened eleven years ago, and every year since then, around Thanksgiving and Christmas time, Craig brings us a fresh, tasty crumb cake. For Christmas he gives us a holiday package of chocolates.
I need to show MY gratitude to Craig and the eternal gift-maker in at least a prayerful fashion, and every year Craig’s gifts remind me.
