Live United McPherson County

United Way of McPherson County is working to build a stronger community by addressing issues related to health, education and income. We believe conversations and intensive listening are the best ways to understand the real problems and move beyond short-term solutions. Community change can be accomplished through broad participation and collaboration. We encourage McPherson County residents to be involved with their community through giving, advocating and volunteering. By working together we can make a larger impact on the issues at hand.

Christmas morning has arrived. In the early years our children awakened by 6:30 a.m. anticipating the arrival of Santa. Now that they understand Christmas traditions, including the truth about St. Nicholas, my husband and I enjoy sleeping in a few extra hours. In fact, this year we were awoken by the dog who needed to go outside!

No matter what time we arise the same excitement is stirred as overflowing stockings lie beside the fireplace and presents surround the tree. Christmas wishes are fulfilled as the children open their gifts and their eyes twinkle with their newfound treasures.

It's now mid morning and the family has dispersed throughout the house. My son is playing a video game, my daughter is trying on her new clothes and my husband is working on a puzzle. As I sit writing these words the aroma of cinnamon rolls lingers in the air. The fragrance of freshly baked cinnamon provides a nice touch to our peaceful Christmas morn.
