Another Year for a Timely Tradition

Again this year we continued our family tradition of filling gift bags for those forgotten at Christmas in a local nursing home. Each year, they look forward to our call asking for names. This year, we did 60 bags. Sixty. And that's not all that are with no one during the holidays.
It's so great to see the next generation so willing to help with the delivery! Jacob, Jordan, Kayla, and Jason were all on hand to load and unload.
And each child took load after load into the building,
under Ken's direction.

My sister Marlene always helps with the delivery also. And two large carts, two layers high, took the bags to be given to the patients Christmas Eve. Now, it feels like Christmas.
