There are numerous holiday specials on TV every year that emphasize the spirit of giving and the appreciation of the ones you love. The sentiments seem more relevant now than ever. My father is elderly and his memory is not what it once was. My husband has not been working for months and neither of us has been able to find new employment. Every day I am thankful that we are all doing reasonably well for now and we don't want for anything.
The fancy electronics and glittery clothing that dominate the catalogues and store shelves are not necessary to have a good life. Many people in the world live well on less. We ought to remember that.
