One of my daughters read this at our Thanksgiving dinner table:

“If you have food in your fridge, clothes on your back, a roof over your head and a place to sleep you are richer than 75% of the world.

If you have money in the bank, your wallet, and some spare change you are among the top 8% of the world’s wealthy.

If you woke up this morning with more health than illness you are more blessed than the million people who will not survive this week.

If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the agony of imprisonment or torture, or the horrible pangs of starvation you are luckier than 500 million people alive and suffering.

If you can read this message you are more fortunate than 3 billion people in the world who cannot read it at all.”

  1. Melanie, thankfulness is one of the greatest forces in the world. I appreciate you sharing your thankfulness with us. My 12 year old daughter is experiencing some defiance with her mom. I read the above to here … and she tried to ignore it. But it made her think. Peace, T


  2. Melanie,
    I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
    I love Tiffany / stained glass and the pieces you’ve shared are gorgeous!
    Thanks for joining us at Inspire Me Monday.
    Hope you are having a fabulous weekend! 🙂
