Counting my blessings....

I was reading my daily dose of Boomamma this morning at 6:12 when I saw her suggestion to read another blog. She said that this is perspective. Here is just a snippit...........

I’ve seen the joy of the truly desperate and poor and believe their trusted God is my God too. I don’t want anything - I’ve had everything and been bored and thirsty for more, and I’ve had less and known passion and felt full. I’m not as easily upset - focussing my life on the third world has exposed the trivial trials of the first world for what they really are. I spend less - I see every starving child, their hair falling out, their tongues swollen and red, every time new technology is released, or I see an advertisement, or I stand before a cash register. I know for certain how much life my money can buy.

You can read the entire post here. I felt so blessed by what I read that I NEEDED to share it with you. Have a blessed day!
