I was especially intrigued by Lisa Roberts, director of Friends and Neighbors Food Pantry - a lady who, despite her own personal/economic hardships, spends her days working hard to provide food for thousands of residents in the S.E. Ohio area.
Reading or watching news stories like this make me:
1) feel very sad
2) want to do something to help, and
3) feel stupid for worrying about the amount of money I spent at Yankee Candle this weekend - seriously, what the heck? Where are my priorities?
I understand that these feelings are exactly what NBC wants you to experience when watching the program.
Trying not to sound preachy here, but everyone has their preachy moments: it's important to step back, take a look at everything you have, and be grateful. and I'm one to talk - this is definitely something I need to keep working on!
On a positive note, I hope everyone had a great weekend! I'm looking forward to starting a new workweek, filled with lots of fun posts in between office hours!
