Generosity column was uplifting

To the editor:

Just needed to tell you how much I enjoyed Donna Steele’s column (“Let generosity continue beyond 12 days,” Dec. 22, A6). Not only was it educational for the many organizations cited but very uplifting. I’ve lived here in Greenfield more than 30 years after moving from Los Angeles and have benefited from its diversified services, not to mention the people involved.

As you pointed out, “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” is a reality when doing through His heart. Those returned good things don’t necessarily come from those you treat well, but He uses others, even those not yet in your life, to return the good at unexpected times.

May He continue to bless and use you in the new year.
