As Christmas nears, we have no tree up for there are no presents beneath it. But it's not about a tree, or presents, or even the yummy goodies consumed at family dinners. It's about one little baby who brought hope to a dark and lonely world so long ago.

That's what it all boils down to. HOPE. Hoping you have the money to pay the bills. Hoping that the food in your refrigerator will last the entire month. Hoping that your donated power wheelchair will "hold on" until you can afford repairs.

But in the midst hope lies a little thing called dreams. It's man's desire for something better than what you currently have. For me and ever since I've started using a chair it was owning a sporty little chair. If I went the insurance route, I would likely have had to deal with bulky, ill fitting, and inappropriate for my situation. Recently hope, and some human angels brought that dream into my life.

A sleepless night led to lying in bed reading Facebook. As I always do I prayed for something better to happen. Then, there it was. The prettiest little chair I've ever seen. The size was right for me, and even the color seemed to click. So I emailed. I prayed "If this is meant for me, let it be. I waited. Prayed some more, and then heard the iconic "You've Got Mail". Opened it, read it, couldn't believe my eyes. The dream was mine!

So a week and a half ago I was delivered the biggest "package" I've ever received. Inside was my dream. Her new owner isn't half bad either! :-)

Thank you to my Rise family, Paul Gray, and all the rest who brought my dream into my life.Cynthia Hill (recipient of a used wheelchair of behalf of TEAM RISE, spreading Christmas cheer, 12-16-14)
