Appreciation Monday

20141025_200811-1I have not handed out Halloween candy since 2007.

Year after year I spent money I didn’t have to feed neighborhood kids.

I got up and answered the doorbell at every ring.

I locked up my dog who freaked each time the bell rang and she heard noises of kid voices.

But why I stopped was because kids were growing more rude as the years past.

I got less and less THANK YOU and more complaints that the candy wasn’t to their liking, or not big enough.

I am appreciative that I can hide out in my house with the lights out and NOT hand out candy for Halloween.

    Thanks for the reminder to help me remind my kids to express their gratitude. I don’t want them taking things for granted.
