Day Sixteen: My Holiday Card to You
Wishing you a safe and happy holiday season. While you enjoy your time and the exchange of gifts with family and friends, please take a moment to remember those that do not have the means to celebrate the holidays so extravagantly.
Also remember those that will not live to see another day because they do not have the means to provide for their, or their children's, survival.
Then go one step further and don't just think about it - do something.
Share your wealth.
P.S. I had a hard time thinking of something I was grateful for today. My younger son and I have been battling the awful cold that my older son had last week. Instead of sounding like he has rocks in his chest, his nose runs like a faucet and in my case it's my ears that hurt the most.
Anyway, I realized that I have so very much to be thankful for and I wanted you guys to realize it, too. Not everyday is a bright one, but anyone reading this right now is probably much better off than the majority of the world's population.
Oh, and it helped when I read this comment on yesterday's post: "You were nominated several times and now we see why. Your site has won a Blog of the Day Award."
I'm not sure who nominated me, but thank you whoever you are. And it was a bit of an ego boost to know that not only are there people out there reading (and not just my close friends who are sweet enough to encourage this ego trip of mine), but that there are people out there who like what they're reading!
And best of all, look what I got:
You know how I love the widgets!!!
