Editor: Volunteering for the Salvation Army kettles was definitely a highlight of my Christmas season.
For anyone who complained that they didn’t have the “Christmas spirit” this year, I highly recommend that you sign up to ring the bells next year. You will not be disappointed. It is so easy and so rewarding.
The people of Langley are very kind and generous. I want to send a special shout out the sweet lady who stopped by my kettle on Saturday, Dec. 22 while I was at Save-on Foods in Walnut Grove.
It was my final shift and I was feeling under the weather. She came by and gave me a peppermint hot chocolate and said “we have to take care of people who take care of others.”
I was so moved. That drink not only warmed my body, but it also warmed my heart. Thank you to my Christmas angel and God bless.
