I’ve always loved Sundays, because it is a good day to think and reflect on life. During the week, work often keeps us so busy that it’s all we can think about. And Saturdays are usually spent catching up on work that has spilled over or recovering from Friday night. 😉 But Sundays are different. Sundays give us time to think, to meditate, to absorb. Today, my meditation was on this particular thought:
“If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more blessed than the millions who will not survive this week. If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, or the pangs of starvation, you are ahead of 900 million people in the world. If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep, you are richer than 75% of this world. If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace, you are among the top 8% of the world’s wealthy. If you can read this message, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world who cannot read at all. 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.”
Do you sometimes forget to be grateful? Worse yet, are you like me and often think that you have nothing to be grateful about? I know I do all the time. If you are like me, then I know you will appreciate this short little video. You think this is just another day in your life? It’s not!! And this video will show you why! Happy Sunday!!!
