In our world, a lot of things are taken for granted. Maybe not everyone takes these for granted, but I know I have at one point or anything. We, usually, know where we will be eating next, we know we have clothes to wear, we know we have a computer or phone to communicate with. However, not everyone is as fortunate as we are. There are people in other countries that walk miles to receive water, have no house, barely have enough clothes to wear. Unfortunately, this also happens in our country. I received an e-mail yesterday from my aunt, and it really got me thinking.
How can we ask for such trivial things in our world, when others are in countries fighting for us? How can we think it’s ok to complain about the weather when there are others who have to actually live in the weather outside. I am at fault on these, and more, also; no one is perfect, but I hope this post makes you think about what you can do for others, and how blessed we truly are.
If you never learn the language of gratitude, you will never be on speaking terms with happiness .
A father and mother kissing their dying little girl goodbye . If you are wondering why all the medic people are bowing: in less than an hour, two small children in the next room are able to live thanks to the little girl’s kidney and liver .
I hope I didn’t offend anyone, just wanted to make sure we all realize just how lucky we are! With that being said, it’s time for another Thankful Thursday!
Having some time by myself to enjoy however I wanted after watching my cousins kids. Honestly, though, it felt weird and I didn’t really enjoy myself!
Running the Shamrock Race and having the best time!
Having the ability to fly home and my mom being able to come get me at the airport! It also helped that I managed to sleep on the plane I was also thankful that Aaron was able to take the afternoon off from work to come see me! Last, but not least, a date with my dad to our favorite ice cream place for the first time this year was very much enjoyed!
Trying on my Wedding Dress!!! Cannot wait to wear it in front of everyone and share pictures of our day!
Getting a sub job at my favorite school and in a classroom I have been in multiple times. It made coming back to work a little bit easier!
