Monday Make Itz

Let's Make a Wish Come True


Our church participated in the Salvation Army Angel Tree Program.
The angel I chose was a 5 year old boy with wishes for new clothes and a coat--
but what intrigued me was the ONLY other gift he wished for was a
SPIDER MAN NIGHT LIGHT.
Thinking this would not be a problem, I set out on a quest to fulfill this wish.
I went to stores in THREE different towns, asking many people where I might find
this nightlight.  I  was able to find products online, but I feared the product would not
arrive in time for the deadline.
Making one last attempt, I stopped at the big box store--of course it had every
licensed character except Spiderman.
Home Depot was next door, so as a last ditch attempt, I stopped there.
I showed the sales associate the list and asked if there was such a thing.
We looked in the lighting section and LOW AND BEHOLD---
they had TWO LEFT!!!!! I think the associate was touched by the story.
As I was walking to the check out, another associate asked if I found all I needed,
and I told her the story. She teared up and said she was so glad Home Depot
could help to make such a small wish come true. Well said....
With a smile on my face and warmth in my heart---I placed the gifts into
the gift bag knowing a little boy's small wish will come true.


They DO Exist!
