Secret Santa Revisits Mom Of 7 Almost A Decade After First Surprise

Secret Santa Revisits Mom Of 7 Almost A Decade After First Surprise

A mother of seven children has received two visits from a generous Secret Santa in just under a decade.

Unexpected kindness can change and brighten up someone’s entire day, week and possibly entire year. A simple act of care and kindness can bring hope to someone who is hopeless, augmenting their outlook on life. What may be small and insignificant to one person could mean the world to someone hurting and struggling. 

In a clip posted on YouTube, a woman received a second visit from a Secret Santa and a team of well-intentioned and cheer-spreading journalists. However, the six-and-a-half-minute clip begins with an apology from the mother of seven.

As she wrote in an email, she explained that she had meant to send this apology note for a while. She is sorry, as she mentions, for her lack of camera-ready response and for not making good TV for the group of journalists. 

She goes on to state how much her then-surprised gift of $2,000 helped to alleviate her and her family’s financial struggles at the time. It’s clear from her out-of-the-blue email that she put that money to good use. 

After unexpected correspondence, the team of journalists decided to pay that woman another visit, but this time they gave her an even bigger gift. They presented her with a check for $10,000!

During the second visit, the woman mentions that she and her family are in a much better place in life. Most of her children are out of the house - two are married - and she has recently started a brand-new job. She also goes into detail about how she used that $2,000 gift from years earlier to literally clothe her family.

“So, $2,000 at Christmas was, like, it paid our bills,” she said. “It put gas in the car. It, you know, gave my kids some clothes. Like, it was, I mean, it was just the little things, but it meant so much, but it was big to me.”

She once again expressed her gratitude for that money all those years ago. 

When she unboxed the second check, the one for $10,000, her reaction was much bigger. 

“No way!” she said. “Are you serious? That is amazing!”

Proverbs 11:17 “The man who has mercy will be rewarded, but the cruel man is the cause of trouble to himself.”
