As I was sorting through the mail today I found this curious envelope from the Ridglea Presbyterian Church. We do not attend this church. I thought it would be some kind of "Find Jesus!" solicitation and I was about to throw it away.
And yet...it did appear to have a handwritten address on it. And they spelled my name properly. Hmmmm. Fine. I'll open the damn thing.
Inside I found a Christmas Card from a couple we know that lives in town and this note:
12-16-07, (7:20 AM)
My name is Thomas i found this outside on the grass all wet so i put it in another envelope and sending it to you. Have a Merry Christmas. God Bless You.
Isn't that just nice? It made me sort of warm and smiley inside.
I love Christmas. It just seems to bring out the best in some people.
