It's a wonderful mood to be in, so here's another.
If you woke up this morning with more health than
illness...youare more blessed than the million
who will not survive this week.
If you have never experienced the danger of battle,
the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of
torture, or the pangs of starvation...you are ahead
of 500 million people in the world.
If you can attend a church meeting without fear of
harassment, arrest, torture, or death...you are more
blessed than three billion 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 you wallet, and
spare change in a dish someplace...you are among the
top 8% of the world's wealthy.
If your parents are still alive and still married...
you are very rare, even in the United States.
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.
If you can read this message, you just received a
double blessing in that someone was thinking of you,
and furthermore, you are more blessed than over two
billion people in the world that cannot read at all.
Have a good day, count your blessings, and pass this
along to remind everyone else how blessed we all are.
