Its more than just gifts

Christmas is done but there are still people in need. I feel we have everything. A place to live, food to eat, and a job. Others are not so fortunate. Now that our kids are older, it seems they sort of understand what it means to be “fortunate.” If not, we remind them. We try to teach them the concept of “value” so they don’t things for granted.

My wife did something wonderful by putting together about 20 gift bags with items like soap, toothpaste, and the like for Family Promise Of Hawaii (http://kukuicenter.org/family-promise-of-hawaii/). We had the boys drop them off at The Center so they could see how something simple can make a huge impact…and to teach them values.

I guess its nice to get shiny things. But it is even better to see a mother smile and to hear a child laugh.
