My work adopted two families through the Salvation Army this year. Today I went with a co-worker to deliver the gifts to the family. This particular charitable action drew my attention to two particular things about myself. First, it is soooo much fun to shop for kids clothes. I don't have children, and for a very long time I never wanted to have any. But, man, it is fun to shop for them. Lately I have been thinking a lot about the future, and more often than not a husband and kids fit into those thoughts. Second, I am so grateful to have what I have. It has always been way too easy for me to feel down and out about what I have in life compared to others. But taking a very small bundle of gifts to a very appreciative family gave me the kick in the ass that I needed.
