I got a $50 gift/tip today at the Best Western. It was from an old black minister who a few days ago asked me to order a pizza for him from Pizza Hut. When he called they hung up on him because he's so old, had a special diet, really hard to understand and need I mention .. crazy? So I ordered it for him so he could take his meds.

Anyhow, today he comes in and has me to sign a sheet of paper, then he handed me a $50 check. He said it was my blessing and .. Merry Christmas.
I feel all weird about it. One of the housekeepers told me not to think like that. She said, "That's yo blessing child! Maybe you did something good for somebody and this is God's way of giving you something back. This is yo blessing and you should cash that check."

(The minister's house burned down earlier last week and has been staying at the hotel. His house, burned to the ground, was on the front page of the paper.)

So I can't help but wonder, is it a blessing? If so, what do I buy myself with it?
But what if it's some sort of test? hmmm.. Am I supposed to give it to charity?
(This sounds like the plot to some cheesy Christmas movie.)
What would YOU do?

I, personally, wouldn't keep it. I mean - given to you by a minister, whose house burned down, during the holiday season - all for ordering a pizza?

I would use it to buy gifts, or give to charity, or something. I would give back with it.

But, then, I'm a sucker for holiday season, and I usually see all things as signs around the holiday season.

Yup. I agree. Grab an angel tree card.
