Christmas Wish Always Reminds Me To Be Thankful

Every year I broadcast live from our Christmas Wish office and this year is no different. The office opened on Monday in Towne Square Mall, but I won't be over there until this coming Monday.

Yesterday, Chad called and asked me to go over to the office when I got off the air and help investigate letters. Of course I said "Sure!", but was thinking "Ugh, I'd rather not." Yep, you know what's coming next.... It doesn't take too many phone calls to realize just how lucky and blessed we all are.
