Freeport, Illinois — Most of us have pretty easy don’t we.
Sure, we go through our little trials and problems in life like the kids complaining or the job not going right.
We complain about the roads or the jobs out there and sometimes, we even argue with our wives and husbands over things we later realize, were maybe not really that big of a deal afterall in the grand scheme of things.
Afterall, it wasn’t a broken arm or a broken leg. It wasn’t cheating, or wrecking the car. It was the garbage, it was what you said last night at dinner, it was whether or not you paid the water bill or grabbed the milk on your way home.
We forget how fortunate we are sometimes.
Just to be healthy, free, able to explore and live life. How lucky we are to even be able to solve our problems and woes of life and – to be able to make friends and build relationships with all those around us.
Sometimes what we complain about, are the very things we should be grateful for.
Others, aren’t so lucky are they, (or so they say).
But, we often forget about them and what their own smile represents in the hustle and bustle of our own daily lives.
We ran across this video put out by the cool kids with a cool teacher at Freeport High School. They call themselves the Pretzel Pride Network and recently they recorded a video that they called “Merry Christmas From Our Family to Yours”.
A very simple video that says so much.
Merry Christmas from our family… it says.
A you watch this, just do a little inventory of your own family and if even for only a moment, pretend these great kids you’re watching right now, make up a part of that family.
Afterall, isn’t that what Christmas is about anyway?
And just look at how happy everyone is.
That’s why we think this might be Freeport’s best “Merry Christmas Wish” video ever.
