Today I am going to keep it short but poignant. I have food, shelter, a vehicle, clothes, and heat. How often have I overlooked these basic necessities as blessings? When I look at the big picture and actually realize that there are so many without a hot meal, without heat or a place to call home, without transportation, and without clothing, I clearly see how blessed I truly am.
In addition to just being thankful for these necessities, I aim to help those less fortunate by donating food and clothes not only this holiday season, but as a regular practice every month. Please join me in doing something to help others; no matter how small or how big your gesture is, you can do something to ease another’s burden.
