A little perspective can go a long way. I've been quite harried and struggling to keep my attitude right. There's just been too much to do this year. So I've been trying to get Duckie to part with her kitchen playset for awhile and she finally agreed this last week. We decided to post a free ad on craigslist because Duckie feels we've been very fortunate with so many people losing jobs and all. We received several responses, so I contacted the first responder. She emailed back saying that her mother in law decided to buy one for her kids. So I contacted the next person. She was ecstatic! This single mom piled her four children into their older van and drove about 35 miles in bad weather so her youngest (two and four years old) would have something for Christmas. I was baking last night so I sent them on their way with fresh cookies. She emailed me later that night thanking me again. I don't think she realizes what she has given my family.
