Christmas Surprise

OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) - A knock on the door from a familiar face was what Trina Wilson got on the eve of Christmas. But what she didn't know is that her friend was simply dropping off gifts from a complete stranger.

"I look out for her and we look out for one another," said Carolyn Campbell.

Through word of mouth, a South Mississippi husband and wife learned of Trina Wilson and her struggle as a single mom.

"It's getting worse every day. Everything is going up but wages is not going up," said Wilson.

 That's why two brand new shiny bicycles for her young boys put a smile on the mother's face.

"It makes you believe in people again because everyone is not out for me, me, me. It seems like these days everyone is just out for me, me, me," said Campbell.

Campbell says she was thrilled when she learned there would be help this Christmas for her hardworking friend.

"With the tough times and with the way things are to have someone just step up out of the blue and say I got it, I want to help someone, it warms your heart and helps you feel great," Campbell said.

Her good friend agrees.

"I'm just thankful that people think of me around Christmas time when they have family or someone else they can do for," said Wilson.

The couple who donated the gifts didn't want to go on camera. They say the best kinds of gifts are gifts without recognition.
