Spread the Good News

The Modern Day Saint Nick

The Modern Day Saint Nick

Arriving in Chicago tonight, I was greeted by good news on the nightly news.  A spree of Christmas angels have been gracing department stores like K-mart and Walmart. By anonymously paying off the balances for folks laying away toys and clothing for children, these angels spread the true meaning of the season.  The television news reported that many of those being gifted by the Christmas angels are “paying it forward” and helping other families in need.

This reminds me of other good efforts of the season – like Taos Feeds Taos back home in New Mexico.

It was a sad day for our family – Uncle Tom – my mother’s brother, passed away this morning in Ireland. Relatives are going home to bury him, and there is another loss to grieve.

When angels like those in the department stores practice random acts of kindness, and when good people organize to help make sure everyone can share the harvest and have a full table – it helps more than just the recipients. All of the community is lifted up.

We need good news everyday.  What can you do to spread it?
