The things you take for granted, others are praying for.
Cherish your parents, your children, your friends. Appreciate the small things in life and kind gestures of others. Be thankful for your education, the ability to see the beautiful earth and it’s nature, to hear the songs sung by the birds in the trees, to feel the warm summer’s breeze on your face. Be grateful for the simple things in life, things like running water to the clothes you wear, to the car you drive. Things we tend to take for granted, others would give anything to have.
That sinking feeling you get when you really want something but you can’t have or afford, don’t let that feeling consume your sense of pride and self worth, don’t think that you have failed, for you might not even see it, but there are others who look at you, and long for the things you have.
No matter what situation you may find yourself in, no matter how bad it might feel, if you just take a moment to open your eyes & look around you, you will realize that you have so many things to be grateful for, how truly blessed you really are…remember that.
