A man was working at the post office.

One day, a letter came with no address. It was addressed to God. He decided he would open it to see what it said. The letter read:

Dear God, I am an 80 year old widow, and I earn a very small pension. My purse got stolen yesterday. It had $100 in it, which was all the money I had until my next payment. Christmas is coming soon, so my friends were supposed to come over for dinner. Without the money I can’t buy any food, and I have no one to assist me. You are my only hope. Will you please help me?

Sincerely, Brenda

The postal worker, wanting to help out, showed the letter to all his co-workers. Everyone handed over some cash from their wallet. He ended up with $95 total, which was sent to the old lady.

A few days after Christmas, another letter came from the same woman to God. All the workers gathered around to read the letter. What the old lady wrote was:

Dear God,

How can I ever thank you enough for what you did for me? Thanks to you, I managed to fix a lovely dinner for my friends. I told them all about your gift. By the way, there was $5 missing. It must have been those assholes at the post office!

Sincerely, Brenda
