I had a precious client that was a dear, dear, elderly man.  He (Mr. P.) had bought and sold many houses through me over the years.  But the most important thing about my relationship was not financial----it was what I learned from that sweet, old man.  He was 94 years old, and had seen and done ...

My son and I noticed the Salvation Army bellringer at the market had an almost empty bottle of Coke at her feet when we entered the store.  We bought a fresh, cold bottle and gave it to her on our way out of the store as we dropped some change in her bucket.  The look on her face was priceless!

Is there someone that has made a difference to you or your kids, somewhere along the line?  A teacher, coach, parent, friend, pastor......that really helped you in some way?  How about sending them a "Thank You" note, just to let them know how they impacted you/your child?
