1. A mysterious note
Usually, Connie Cooley liked to wave at children when they boarded her school bus. Today, she kept her gaze fixed straight ahead. She had just come out of a difficult family counseling session with her eldest son, Shayn. She felt crushed. Desperate. How did we get there ? She thought. Shayn had been a pleasure to raise, active in the scouts and the church. The two were close. Then he discovered alcohol at 17… The children walked past Connie and got on the bus. One or two said hello. Then a little girl threw a piece of paper in her lap. “This is for you, Connie!” she says.
Read the note mysteriously delivered by Connie.

3. Note from beyond
Christmas was the busiest time of the year. Carolyn and Bob Martin’s Christmas tree farm. Every year at the state fair they held a drawing for a free tree. Carolyn kept all registration forms. She planned to send participants flyers about their Christmas tree operation. Rather than rewrite all of this information, Carolyn thought she would use the slips themselves as mailing labels for the envelopes. Even so, it was an arduous task… but a more dignified task than she accomplished. The following September, Carolyn and Bob were manning the booth again at the state fair when a woman approached them. “I want to thank you,” she said, “for being part of a miracle.”
See how Carolyn’s letters gave one woman the comfort she needed.
