Such is life…
I read an article last night on Yahoo about what the middle class can’t afford nowadays and without a doubt, it was so right. But…despite not having or not being able to do those things which for me is not a necessity (or something we could live without), I am still thankful that we still have food on the table and we eat three times a day. Not all are blessed to have it. That being said, I am thankful and more than grateful for what we have.
Thankful for the food, for the shelter and for the good health. I feel sorry for a friend whose sister was diagnosed with tumor and needed surgery asap. We know how it goes when it comes to having surgery…money, money, money. She’s devastated because that’s the problem, her money is not enough to help her sister. As much as I want to help her, I couldn’t because just like her, I am a stay at home mom and living on one income.
This is one of those times that I realize how blessed I am. We are not rich but for as long as we have food on the table, shelter to keep us warm at night, clothes to wear, and good health, then life for me is good and beautiful.
There is always something to be thankful for, is it not? I hope you also find something to be thankful for not just today but everyday.
