    I don't usually talk about what my wife and I give to others at Christmas.
    A private matter.

    Last year, we might of helped a family out a little bit at Christmas.

    Today, that man stopped to see me. To thank me again, and to show me
    something. They had had a better year this time around.

    And he really impressed me.

    This year it was him helping another family at Christmas.

    He had a tree with all the fixings. Christmas dinner and some presents for
    a family that they were on the way to help.

    I thought that was a Secret Santa story worth sharing here.

    Thank you so much for sharing that. It is truely wonderful to learn when the kindness of others makes a positive impact on those around us. Thank you for helping him, and thank him, in turn, for passing it on.

    Happy Holidays, Spook. That truly warms my heart.

    Good works beget good things. I have been blessed by some of those who received what I have been able to assist them with.

    (Fooh. Sometimes the best syntax just takes the joy out of passing on a message. I'll just have to deal with it.)
