This morning, I would like to share a short but true story with you.
When I was a sophomore in college, I met a family I fell in love with. They had 7 children and very little money, but they always found something to be happy about, and always something to give to someone on special occasions. One day I went to visit, and the oldest sister (a dear friend of mine), told me it was her younger sister's birthday that day. Her sister was a down syndrome child of 7. She was the sweetest little girl, always full of smiles and hugs. I looked into her twinkly little eyes and asked, "What did you get for your birthday?" Her older sister said proudly: "She got a birthday cake!" My dear friends, that is all she got, but the entire family was overjoyed. I realize many of us in this country are suffering in one way or another, but let's all be thankful for each other, for our health, and whatever else we have been blessed with.
This is Day 5 of the
