You know what is great? Perspective.
After the team spent Wednesday at the Manchester Homeless Shelter, coach Geno Auriemma told the Huskies he didn't want to hear any complaints of being tired. After all, he told them, they can very easily switch places with the people they were helping.
It may not be the holidays despite school still being on holiday, but being able to appreciate what we have and what we can do, be it writing, basketball or anything else, should keep us grounded.
Sometimes when you see how little some have, you really appreciate every ounce of what you have.
