                                What’s in Your Envelope?
     Several years ago a couple attended their son’s wrestling match. The father
     despaired that the other team had no equipment. No sneakers, headgear or
     uniforms. The son’s team won the match. The mother left the match and
     went to the local sporting goods store and purchased equipment for the other
     team. On Christmas morning there was a white envelope stuck in the tree
     with the Father’s name on it. He opened it and beheld his present—the
     scrappy wrestling team adorned in full uniform and equipment. His Christmas
     present from his wife, not a shirt or a tie but a team of adoring smiles. The
     best gift he had ever received. What is in your envelope this Christmas?
