blessed we all are

Hello All, how are you today, just browsing around Etsy today and I came across this fab lady who has a Blog and Etsy shop, she has wonderful stitch markers

Something to Think About (here)

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

If you have money in the bank, in your wallet and spare change in a dish someplace…you are among the top 8% of the worlds wealthy.

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

If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation…you are ahead of 500 million people in the world.

If you can attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest. torture or death…you are more blessed than three billion people in the wolrd.

If you hold up your head with a smile on your face and are truly thankful, you are blessed because the majority can, but most do not.

If you can hold someone’s hand, hug them or even touch them on the shoulder, you are blessed because you can offer healing touch.

If you can read this message, you just received a double blessing in that someone was thinking of you, and furthermore, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world that cannot read at all.

Have a fantastic and happy day and look forward to the weekend ahead, count your blessings and pass this along to remind everyone else how blessed we all are.
