When Boy Mails a Birthday Card to His Dad in Heaven, Postman Comforts Him With a Celestial White Lie
By Good News Network – Nov 30, 2018

*** begin quote ***

When a young boy mailed a birthday card to his father in heaven earlier this month, he was surprised – and comforted – to get a response.

Since his father passed away four years ago, 7-year-old Jase Hyndman from West Lothian, Scotland mailed the card as a means of wishing his dad a happy birthday.

Instead of an address on the front of the envelope, however, Jase simply wrote: “Mr. Postman, can you take this to heaven for my dad’s birthday. Thanks.”

While it might seem that the story would end there, assistant delivery office manager Sean Milligan from the UK’s Royal Mail service wrote a response to reassure the youngster that his card was in good hands.

It’s good when adults take a minute to make a child’s day.

Not a big effort, but a simple act of kindness.

Hope I’m alert for such an opportunity.
