For the past 10 days, I’ve counted down the most important lessons I learned this year. Here is #1 – and don’t forget you still have a few hours to get that last-minute tax deduction!
Helping Others – During our Disney trip, we rode a bus between parks and one day there was a man with a service dog aboard. Fred was badly injured serving our country in Iraq, and his Labrador Retriever – aptly named Barney – provides support so he can get around without crutches. If you’re looking for a year-end charitable contribution, consider a member in your area of Assistance Dogs International. It costs $30,000 to train and provide a service dog free of charge to a wounded warrior. The person you’ll be helping paid a price. This is your chance to say thank you.
