It's so fantastic when something we do comes back to us years later! This was touching.

There were some places where you used semicolons where commas should be, and a POV switch (into the boy's head) toward the end.

Encouragement is a gift I've often benefitted from, but I definitely don't have, so I loved reading about this compassionate character.

You did a wonderful job of capturing Christie as a young, uncertain girl as she progressed to a woman of compassion, equipped by a special spiritual gift. She found her calling that December morning - she touched a life. Very nice piece!

This was a very good story. We need to remember how powerful are words can be.
