Where did the time go? Here we are already at the end of the year. Looking back there have been so many things that have happened for which I am grateful. This time of year always makes me think of the innocence of children. Their faces glowing from the holiday lights shining brightly everywhere you look. Random acts of kindness….bells ringing outside of shopping centers….people rolling up dollars to place inside the Salvation Army bucket…others donating toys and goodies to the Angel Trees. It is my sincere wish and prayer that every child has a happy face, warm home and plenty of food to eat. Please don’t forget to do whatever you can to help those in need. The blessings that we receive are not ours to keep…we must share them with others. Remember also, this time of the year long ago a child was born that gave us the ultimate gift…the gift of redemption and hope. On behalf of Every Child Has a Story, I wish you the happiest of Christmas wishes and a blessed and abundant New Year!
