The True Meaning Of the Holiday's




I hope that we can all find some truth in what this little boy tried to teach us and to let it touch each of our hearts this season.I think he was a wise soul for when asked what he appreciated about his life he said "I had one".


My wish is that each of you and your families have a wonderful holiday season and that in this time of year let us not forget those who touched this little boys heart.My wish is that I have Brenden's heart for others this holiday for isn't that what this time of year is really about and not about materialistic things.


“Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. Remembering them that are in bonds, as bound with them: and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.” Heb. 13:2, 3.

I saw Brendan's story on the news and I was so sad to learn he passed away. Because of him and to honor him I will be giving more to charities that I believe in this season. If we all do a little it can be a lot!
