If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more blessed than the million who will not survive the week.
If you have food in your refrigerator, clothes on your back,a roof over your head and a place to sleep, you are richer than 75% of this world.
If you have money in the bank or in your wallet, you are among the top 8% of the worlds wealthy.
If you hold up your head with a smile on your face and are truly thankful, you are blessed because the majority can, but most do not.
This is one of my favorite found quotes, and I know it is a repeat, but I feel it is worth saying again. More and more I am finding that gratitude is missing, and it is especially apparent at this time of year. People don't seem grateful for anything. It always seems to be about more. This is not a lecture, because at times I find myself guilty, too. It is a reminder to all of us.
If we would only stop and really look at what we have, and take time to appreciate it, I think most of us would truly see that we have much, much more than we think we do.
It's been a tough week. Many not so great things have happened, and I have been dwelling on the negative (seems like I've done that a lot lately). Today, I will work hard at seeing all the blessings and wonderful things I do have.
