Vida meets one Christmas angel

GREENVILLE — Merry Christmas!

— As I sit here on Saturday morning, mere days away from Christmas Eve, it occurs to me that I have yet to begin my shopping for the big day.

As I’ve mentioned in years past, being a Man of the Male Gender, it is within my DNA somewhere (right next to the Monday morning coffee gene) to procrastinate unceasingly until a certain subdued panic sets in — usually the week before Christmas — before going shopping.

OK, the subdued panic has officially begun. With luck, I hope to head to the stores this evening and wrap up my Christmas purchases in one fell swoop.

That would leave me time for wrapping presents while watching the Cowboys game today and then take a deep breath and relax until Christmas morning.

Oh, who are we kidding. I am going to be the idiot at the corner gas station at 6 p.m. Tuesday, hoping that someone on my list really wants to find a can of Fix-A-Flat under the tree ...

— Of course, this is the time of year when miracles do happen. Vida, My Wife and the Most Magnificent Monarch of Mobile Communications at the Kellar Estate, met a true Christmas Angel at the Sprint Store by United Cellular in Greenville this week.

Vida had some issues to address concerning her phone and our daughter Jaylynn’s phone and was fortunate enough to be waited on by “Wesley.”

Since that time, Vida has been overflowing with praise about the customer service she received, how Wesley made sure all of her questions were answered and even how he stayed well beyond the end of his shift to make sure Vida had everything she needed.

Vida is not one to hand out compliments if they are not earned, so Wesley must have really gone above and beyond to impress my wife that much. To which I can only say thank you Wesley. You have certainly earned yourself one extremely happy customer in my wife.

— Let me close with this reminder of how all of us have already been given the greatest gift:

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)

From the Kellar Estate to all of yours, have a very Merry Christmas!

Just a thought ...
