Santa Clause Came to Town

Postman SantaYesterday when Ken went to gather the mail, there was a mysterious card in amongst the bills. It was a Hallmark card from Santa!

I’m a pretty good sleuth when it comes to recognizing handwriting, but this card left me stumped. Even the postmark wasn’t helpful because most of the mail which is sent from Racine goes through the larger Milwaukee Post Office.

When we opened the card, out fell a gift certificate for $200! Ken and I were both were humbled with the generosity someone had shown to us, but as the receiver of such a wonderful gift, we have the natural desire to say, “Thank You,” to the giver.  On top of that, this isn’t the first time we’ve had this dilemma. For the last three years, “Santa” has been sending us such gifts.

It’s truly a shame that children MUST learn at a certain age that Santa is only a figment of a parent’s imagination, isn’t it? When in fact, I know that he lives on in the hearts of generous people and every once in a while, he makes a personal appearance.

Thank you, Santa. I believe.
