My mail arrived 2hrs. ago. My habit is to get my mail and immediately walk to the waste basket to pitch all the junk that arrives each day.

In the stack of junk mail was a small handwritten card. I did not recognize the name on the return address.I thought that it most probably was a belated sympathy card.

My day has been made.

My son Mark's birthday is in 9 days.

I can't buy Mark a present this year but at least I know someone else is happy.

Dear Ms. Stitt,
Thank You so much for the honor of receiving this scholarship. I understand Mark's love for history because I too have this same love.I have been married a little over a year now and this scholarship will greatly help my wife and me pay for my schooling. I also want to thank you for making this money available to those who have chosen teaching for their life's work. This scholarship has already made a tremendous impact on me as I am sure that it will for student's in the future. Again.thank you.

Happy Birthday, Quicksilver, I love you and miss you so much that at times I think my heart will break.
Love Mom
