Today, on our way to visit Abby, Matt spotted a tiny little Christmas tree set up beneath an overpass. Obviously, a homeless person had tried to make the best out of a bad situation.
It got me thinking about how much we have. Yes, our circumstances are less than perfect, but we have a wonderful place to stay, we have received some fabulous presents, and we were all able to be together today. That homeless person had nothing to protect him but a bridge, probably didn't get any presents this year, and may not have been with any other family members at all.
I woke up this morning feeling slightly sorry for myself, but was set straight when I saw that tree. We have way too many blessings to be pitiful.
I hope that you were able to enjoy Jesus' birth today with your family as well!
