Without fail, many of those Christmas must-haves our little ones pined over are half-forgotten already. And it’s about this time that we re-think all of that over-spending and wondering if these kids even know how thankful they should be. If that’s the case for you, you’re definitely not alone. It’s a sign of the times. We want to provide happiness for the people we love and it’s easy to think that material possessions can do just that. But it doesn’t always work that way. When you know better, you do better though. Gratitude, after all, is a trait best learned by observing the spirit of thankfulness. Giving back to those truly in need is a terrific way to help ourselves remember what’s important.
King once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’”
