Happy Thanksgiving
Give thanks with a grateful heart. This time of year it is so easy to do just that! I have learned that gratitude should be part of every day, not just one. Thanksgiving is the act of counting your blessings, intentionally looking for even the smallest things in how God has blessed my life and being grateful. When I dwell on being thankful, it changes my focus to the abundance that is in my life and to Him who gives all things. At The Real Life Center, thankfulness looks like the client family that YOU have had a part in helping with through your financial donation - a family that was able to stay together in their house, kids that were able to go to bed without being hungry. Your donations have given children coats on a cold winter day and families to have a Thanksgiving dinner. All with a renewed hope that someone cared and that God is faithful!


Being thankful looks like the young man that came back to invite me to his high school graduation. He was grateful that someone helped his family and he was able to stay in school, building a strong start to his future. From all of us at the Real Life Center we say THANK YOU! Thank you for your financial help, for donating items, for your time, prayers and your willingness to make a difference in the life of someone hurting! Through YOUR partnership: Lives are changed. Families are impacted. Communities are stronger.
