If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep, you are richer than 75% of this world. If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish, you are among the top 8% of the world’s wealthy .
And if you get this on your own computer, you are part of the 1% in the world who has that opportunity.
If you woke up this morning with more health than illness…you are more blessed than the many who will not even survive this day.
If you have never experienced the terror of combat, the hopelessness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pain of starvation…you are ahead of 700 million people in the world.
If you can attend a place of religious worship without the fear of harassment, arrest, torture or death you are envied by, and more blessed than, three billion people in the world.
If your parents are still alive and still married…you are very rare .
If you can hold your head up and smile, you are not the norm, you’re unique amongst billions in doubt and despair.
If you can read this message, someone was thinking of you as very special and you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world who cannot read at all.
Have a great day and count your blessings.
