It was Christmas time and I was probably in the 5th or 6th grade. I belonged to the Stepping Stone Club which was funded through the C.S. Mott Foundation. Us girls were invited to go to Mr. Mott’s home and sing carols for him….when we got there, we took off our coats and hats. The house was beautiful, and we sang with the piano there…when we got ready to leave, Mr. Mott helped each of us put our coats and hats back on, and kissed us on the cheek and thanked us for singing for him. I think that was when I realized Christmas isn’t just about what you get, but about what you can give, even if it is just a song. I remember loving that he was so caring for us. Loved the Stepping Stone program for girls…and of course going to Hamady House. Thank you, Mr. Mott.
