Giving Thanks

Last night I had the opportunity to experience something unsettling.

I visited some of Rochester’s most desperate neighborhoods.

It was truly humbling.

I asked myself, “Why me? How did I get so lucky?”

These people lived in outright poverty.

Not to mention, undergoing traumatic experiences.

So next time you are enjoying your mug of hot cocoa next to a beautifully decorated tree…

Hug your family…

Take a moment to enjoy…

And be thankful.

Merry Christmas.
