Christmas Spirit

Uncle Watty shared this story about Granddad Major.  I obviously chose not to use the man's name.  The message is what's important - what that man did, how he chose to rectify it and how my grandfather responded.  If that's not a Christmas message, I don't know what is.

" _ _ _ _ _ _ _ shoplifted some toys (from the Espy Mercantile) around Christmas.  Years later he had a conscience, confessed his crime and paid for the stolen goods.  His confession made Daddy (Major) trust him and think highly of him the remainder of his life."    Watty Espy
