This week ushers in the SEASON OF GIVING for all of us. We are toting up (or down) our Christmas decorations to get ready for all the company and gift giving.
It has been a tradition in our family to give to others in this SEASON.
There are hundreds of businesses giving turkey dinners this week--if you haven't planned on participating you should, it just makes you feel so appreciative of all that you have.
I will never forget a year when I was in my twenties, my hubby was in the Air Force and we lived away from home. The company I was working for was going to bless a family with groceries for Thanksgiving, a tree and all the trimmings for Christmas.
I volunteered to go along and be one of the presenters. We went to a community of native americans who lived outside the city. They had several children and when I entered the home I was taken back. I had grown up in a middle class family, never went hungry and always had plenty of clothes to wear and a nice bed to sleep in.
This family lived in a dwelling with a dirt floor, the children slept in cardboard boxes with some kind of bedding. When the mother accepted the food and gifts she cried and cried. I have never been the same!!!!!!!
During this SEASON--don't forget the unfortunate.
