Sometimes the most beautiful blessings and surprises come to us in the most unexpected ways and this story is proof of that.
The world is full of people with secret talents and hobbies that we usually have no idea about. Sometimes all we need is someone to simply do something unusual for us, but we have no idea how to find that someone—even if they're right next to us. However, what happens when luck brings you closer to someone who has exactly what you didn't even realize you wanted? In a beautiful story that allows a family to hear the voice of their loved one years after they've passed away, we see what Christmas miracles are made of.
There are two main characters in this story. One is a daughter who lost her mother years ago and the other is an electrician with a knack for restoring old devices. These two meetings resulted in something wonderful, reports WCIA news. Another key component in this wholesome story is a book called "Frosty the Snowman" written by Diane Muldrow. It is basically the story of Frosty, a snowman who has been brought to life by an old silk hat and has a lot of fun playing with children who built him, according to Google Books.
An animated version of "Frosty the Snowman" was extremely dear to a woman called Linda Swartz since this old book held a dear memory of her mother for her. The book had an electronic recording of her mother, who would read it to her quite often. Since the book was quite old, it was corroded to the extent that it no longer worked. Undoubtedly, this made the woman quite sad. But it was quite likely a fact she had made peace with. However, life had other plans for her. Those plans happened around the happiest time of the year—Christmas!
One day, an electrician by the name of Lars Robin came to Swartz's house to fix something. Little did anyone know that Robin had a hidden passion. He absolutely loved preserving old things and had started doing so when he was a teacher before becoming an electrician. He said he understood the importance and worth of preserving things like books and toys because he saw a lot of kids making these things and being so emotionally attached to them. Additionally, he also observed how the parents grew fond of and became increasingly attached to the pieces of arts and crafts their kids drew or made. That's why, when he came across Frosty the Snowman's book and realized that the recording no longer played, he knew he had to help Swartz.
On Robin's offer to help, Swartz told the channel, "I was really shocked because I didn’t think it was going to work. For a second there it looked like it wasn’t going to, but it did. I couldn’t be happier." Robin wanted to help selflessly and that shows based on the fact that he said, "Helping people is the heart of what we do, so being able to help somebody in that kind of specific way, those opportunities don’t come around too often, but when they do, you kind of jump on them." So he repaired this animated book, giving Swartz a chance to hear the voice of her mother reading to her once again and he definitely did add some extra magic to Swartz and her family's Christmas.
