Today I am especially grateful that my basic needs have been met my entire life.
After going to California and being in much bigger cities than the one we live in, I noticed a lot more people who didn’t have food or shelter, and most of their belongings were with them in a bag or cart.
I was so worried about where we were going to eat and what next fun thing we were going to do, that seeing all of those people made me take a minute and think.
I am so grateful I don’t have to worry about when I’m going to get my next meal or where I’m going sleep tonight. I don’t have to worry about my safety on regular basis or wonder if there is anyone in the world who cares enough to help or love me.
I have all of that. I have a nice apartment, plenty of food, clean running water, clean clothes (and plenty of them), a job, a hard working husband, and family and friends who love me.
That’s what I am truly grateful for today, and I hope you can find the things that you are most grateful for today. I would love to hear what you are grateful for in the comments, big or small!
