I Am Blessed....
I watched people go into the grocery , on walkers, canes , and scooters. Even with arthritis , I can still walk. People with kids , not in warm enough looking coats. I have a coat , gloves, and scarf, I am warm. Do you see where this is leading.?? We have to count each and every blessing we have. The more I saw the more I rang that bell. I do not know for a fact how much was put into the kettle, but more put money in than walked by.
I met a 90 year old man , he was there to buy candy and roses for a 97 year old lady. He put money in the kettle and introduced himself to me . We shook hands and I have a new friend. I met a man that told me he was in the Oklahoma City bombings and that the Salvation Army really helped them a lot. He put a big bill in the kettle. I thanked all who put money in and wished all a Merry Christmas. I will tell you tomorrow about the youngest person I met . He is a small angel.
Enjoy this day, count your blessings . No matter how small...you know it is the small things that make our lives worth living. My blessings are Angie, Kathy, Karen , and Lizzy. :):)
