    There was this fellow who worked for US Postal Service whose job it
    Was to process all the mail that had illegible addresses. One day a
    Letter came to his desk, addressed in a shaky handwriting to God.
    He thought, "Oh boy, better open this one and see what it's all about."

    So he opened it and read:

    "Dear God:
    I am an 83 year old widow living on a very small pension. Yesterday
    someone stole my purse. It had 100 dollars in it which was all the
    Money I had until my next pension check. Next week is Thanksgiving,
    And I had invited two of my friends over for dinner. Without that money, I have nothing to buy food with. I have no family to turn to, and you are my only hope. Can you please help me?"

    The postal worker was touched, and went around showing the letter to
    all the others. Each of them dug into his wallet and came up with a few dollars. By the time he made the rounds, he had collected 96 dollars, which they put into an envelope and sent over to her. The rest of the day all the workers felt a warm glow thinking of the nice thing they had done.

    Thanksgiving came and went, and a few days later came another letter
    From the old lady to God. All the workers gathered around while the
    letter was opened.

    It read, "Dear God, How can I ever thank you enough for what you did for me? Because of your generosity, I was able to fix a lovely dinner for my friends. We had a very nice day, and I told my friends of your wonderful gift. By the way, there was 4 dollars missing. I think it must have been those thieving pricks at the Post Office."
