Reflecting on blessings and those in need
- It is time to be grateful for our joys and blessings and also
strengthen our care and compassion for the many whose essential needs
are not being met.
I received these statistics in the email.

Happy Thanksgiving, Polly
In the spirit of Thanksgiving...
If you woke up 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
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
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 world's
If your parents are still alive and still married...you are very
rare, even in the United States.
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
Have a good day, count your blessings, and pass this along to
remind everyone else how blessed we all are.
