There are Christmas gifts. And then there are those that not only overwhelm but are life-changing as one family found out when their grateful son stepped up with a staggering surprise. I have one more gift for you. For both of you, the son told his parents as his mother opened it to read his hand-written note. It included three small boxes and each one had been checked off: Raising kids, College loans, and the last one, Mortgage. The son finished his message: Your house is paid off. Merry Xmas Joe.
