Just when you thought the world was going to heck in a handbasket. . .


In San Diego, a family's Thanksgiving holiday was made thanks to a wrong number.  A daughter who was struggling to make ends meet called and asked her mother for help.  Her mother was struggling herself, but was willing to miss a mortgage payment to help.  When she called to let her daughter know that she would send money she dialed the number wrong.  Virginia Saenz heard the message on her answering machine and decided to help. 

From the article by Eric S Page:
So Saenz went grocery shopping on Thanksgiving morning with her 14-year-old son in tow to tell her what kids liked to eat. They bought food for a Thanksgiving dinner and enough groceries to get Crutchfield's daughter through the end of the month -- her next payday.

She said the act of giving made "the day special for me."
"I helped somebody," Saenz said Friday. "I think it's what anybody would have done."
Now THAT is something to be thankful for.
