The Gift of Giving

The words "I want" are two of the very first words a young child learns to utter. Do not ask me why this is so. With the beautiful Christmas season upon us, those two words are heard over and over, again and again.

In our society today there are so many people, young and old, who will not receive anything. Can you now imagine the emptiness inside of someone who expects to receive nothing because of their stage in life?

Yet we all know the wonderful feeling that overwhelms us when we are able to help someone, even a complete stranger. Can you even imagine how you might feel if you could take a gift to someone who is less fortunate, to see the appreciation and excitement, the pure joy?

Let's try and create pure joy in the life of someone less fortunate. The gift of giving, it is the most wonderful gift of all.
