Simple Gifts and Giving Thanks

This past August, I met a young man who truly understood that gratitude is an attitude.  I was volunteering at a camp for at risk kids, many of whom face poverty on a daily basis.  On the third evening of camp, every camper receives a new pair of athletic shoes which are donated by a major shoe distributor.

The following morning, this young man arrived for class with a grin that extended from ear to ear.  As he showed me his new shoes, he excitedly said that his mom was going to be so happy that he got a new pair of shoes.  I think that he was too!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
