Never knew...

I never knew...
all the years I passed by the people ringing those bells....
That I should be putting money in that red-bucket...
You see...
I didn't know that I was born in a Salvation Army maternity home.
Not until I found my birth-mother did I know that I should be grateful to this organization.
Every time I get my money out to put in the red-bucket now....
I start crying..
the poor man ringing the bell this year thought I had maybe lost my mind...
it's never a sad cry, it's a good cry ....
It's apart of who I am and I'm so happy that I know where I was born...
for years and years I didn't...
So if you ever have a spare quarter at Christmas-time
give to the red-bucket...
