To the editor:

Christmas was a joy for many children, families, and individuals thanks to the generosity of outstanding people, businesses, churches and organizations this year.

The staff at Todd County Health and Human Services thanks all who made a great difference by reaching out and extending your hearts, generosity and the presents. Melody Beattie says it best, "Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend."

You made the difference in the lives of children and families and for that we are grateful. Thank you and have a wonderful 2019.
