It was a beautiful day at the Congregational Church of Patchogue yesterday. First, during the Children’s Talk, the kids were given a greeting card of appreciation by the pastor for their presence in church; they we spoke about the huge (I mean, huge!) box of chocolates given to our soup kitchen workers as a token of appreciation for their dedication; then the kids appreciated the grandparents (their own and all others) who received their handmade tokens (cards) of appreciation for Grandparents Day. Long ago I quit the Take People & Things for Granted Committee. So nice to be appreciated! And so nice to appreciate others!
