These are the gifts that my colleagues chose for residents of the Denton State Supported Living Center. This huge complex on the south side of our city is not well known to most of us. I had never been there until I dropped off gifts. That is another blog post.
The abundance that this picture represents is not just of gifts, but of the love and concern of my colleagues and the joy they took in selecting them. I saw a tenderness on faces as they talked about the gifts that their adopted residents had requested ... that is different and greater than when we adopted Salvation Army Angels or collected for other groups.
What a blessing.
