Yep, that is a very heartwarming story to read. It's amazing how human kindness can spread, here's a true example - -

At Christmas time last year my Wife was going through the drive-thru at McDonalds to get a breakfast sandwich. She noticed an elderly couple in the car behind her, and told the girl at the window she would like to pay for their food also. She said she saw the couple waving at her as she pulled out of the lot. Now here's the really cool part - when my Wife was at the drive-through a couple of days later, the same girl was working the window, and told her that the next 7 cars behind her that day had done the same thing!!

Merry Christmas everyone. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I was reading the message via that link and I asked myself the question: Kmart, what is that.?
I would appreciate, if you tell me, what Kmart is.
And what I can further say is: X-mass is a wonderfull time and I do hope that on Earth once will be peace.

It is always nice to read about good things, which tend to get shoved aside because the bad things take center stage.

Here is another one, from my local newspaper, which was posted yesterday:

Wow seems someone wants to see the christmas spirit come alive again! Great to see that so many people in the world are at least still giving and want to not receive! Even in this bad economy people are still showing some heart and doing nice things for needy people. God bless them all and Merry Christmas to all! Maybe the world isn't as bad as it is thought to be.

@ computer-man,

@rowal5555,
Thank you so much for posting this!!


Thank you for the link missPlaces.
Kmart, that is something what we have too in my country.
Not all places in my country have a Kmart, but some places.
With Christmas purchases is it easy when you visit the Kmart, because all shops are close to you.
It is better than that you must first make a long trip to a shop and than to another.
Also do I think that the Kmart shops are cheaper than shops that stand alone.
Because, Kmart shared the Tax and other payments.

Just think what would happen in this world if everyone treated each other this nicely all the time and not just at Christmas!

In the city that I used to live in there was a Secret Santa.
He would hand out $100 bills to people that needed it.
I think I remember that he died a few years ago and his identity was finally revealed.
Others have carried on the tradition.

Every year the Salvation Army finds a gold Krugerrand or two in their collecion buckets.

I like the Christmas season.

Agree, but the human is from nature a jealous weason, when the one has better than other, wants the other more than the other that has it better, think on money.
Example: Person A has 4 billion on his count, than wants the other 6 or more billions on his count.
We people like money, the most from them want have the power, money and power are 2 things that will be care, that there will be come not peace on Earth.
With X-mass is peace on Earth; we do thinking that.
When we listen to the radio or we looking and listing to our t.v. with X-mass, than do we hearing and we see people that make a fight with together.
We and the rest of us like X-mass, we are friendly for together, but there also people they have other though and are nasty to others and yeah, here we go again, there is no peace between that folk.
Do you know dear Eyesee and others when we have peace on Earth? That is when money doesn't exist.

I am still agree with you, I think that it is better when we doing or that sort persons don't exist.
It is nearly Christmas, so I think only at that time now.

I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and not least a good and health end of the year.
:santa:
