About 10 Christmases ago, we were having a really hard time financially. We were barely able to pay our bills, let alone think about buying gifts for our 2 little kids. We had put in a prayer request to the church we were going to at the time about being able to make ends meet & pay our bills.
We got a call from the church letting us know that they were going to pay our entire past due electric bill, plus someone had some gifts for our kids and could she drop them by our home. I remember this woman coming over with her daughter who was about 13 at the time, and bringing my kids a huge bag of clothes, books and toys.
I remember thinking what a remarkable thing for this single mom to do. She told us that while she was by no means rich, she had someone do the same thing for her when she had very little money & she always wanted to pay it forward. I truly believe that the lesson in all of this was not about giving the toys & clothes (she even brought us a gift card for a grocery store) but that no matter where you are in life, you can always help someone less fortunate than you are. The lesson she taught us that day, and not to mention her young daughter, has not been forgotten and is something I think about often, especially at this time of year.

Are you familiar with Invisalign? I had heard the name of course but wasn’t 100% sure what they were. Invisalign is a series of nearly invisible, removable “aligners” that are used to gradually straighten teeth without metal or wires. Kids & adults can be treated using Invisalign. A wide array of broad issues can be corrected with Invisalign, like overly crowded teeth, widely spaced teeth, open bite, crossbite, overbite and underbite. In most cases, Invisalign is comparable in cost to traditional braces, is covered by most dental insurance plans, and affordable financing options are often available. Find out more about Invisalign on their website & also on Facebook and Twitter. The best way to find an Invisalign provider is to visit the Invisalign Doctor Locator. Take the Invisalign Smile Assessment to find out if Invisalign is right for you or your child.
