On this week of Thanksgiving, we are mindful of the many blessings we enjoy. We are grateful to work with some amazing individuals and families and are very thankful for their ongoing trust. As we think about the opportunities we are granted as citizens of The United States of America, we realize how fortunate we are. This is a quote that has been around a while, but it always seems to put things in perspective and remind us how thankful we are for all we do have.
“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. If you can read this message you are more fortunate than 3 billion people who cannot read at all”
Let us all give thanks this week for what we do have and be mindful of those that are less fortunate than we may be.
