Be Grateful for the Present You Got

Not long before the end, I asked my brother Jeff if he was angry about his life being cut so short. He said, “I try not to be. If you get a really good present for Christmas, but someone else gets a better one, you shouldn’t say hey, theirs is better—you should be grateful for the present you got.”

He was always a better man than me, so as this year draws to a close, I’m going to try to be more like him and be grateful for what I have.
