Today at work we put up the Angel Tree. It is filled with requests from individuals and families seeking items for Christmas. When one picks up a tag, it is a tangible reminder of how much one has and how little someone else does. It is a reminder to be thankful for our blessings….our jobs..our health when there are so many who don’t have what we do.
I picked a male and female that I will shop for tonight. I am looking forward to it because it will allow me to think of someone else, to put my needs second and someone who is less fortunate first. It is a good way to end a week full of regrets, full of poor decisions…a great way to look ahead and embrace the opportunity to make a difference.
Let the season of giving begin….
