Being Truly Thankful

Every day I make a point to say "thank you" for all of the wonderful things and people in my life.

This morning I was overwhelmed in reading this article in our local paper about 700+ families in the local area who had NOTHING for their kids this Christmas.

One of my favorite things to do every Christmas is to shop for gifts off of the angel tree at church. I had a terrible time this year finding the specific toys requested. In some cases, I drove around to four or five stores to find the right thing.

My irritation at finding the presents seems so silly now.
