How Blessed I Am

I sit here writing on my laptop, which I am very grateful for, and think about how many people on this Earth have a computer too. In this country, that's a lot! But compared to the world, having a computer is a privilege. Hey, having a toilet is a privilege! I am very thankful for my family, friends, a safe and comfy house, to be able to go to school, and so many other great things!

Whenever I am hungry, I can just walk over to the fridge and grab a snack. It is sad to think that some people around the world are dying because they don't have food.

Living in a developed country can make you forget that the lifestyle you live, the things in your bedroom, aren't everyday things for everyone.

Thinking about these things make me want to help in some way, reach out to them and tell them to have faith, hope, and that there is a light, that shines even in the darkest of times!

After thinking about everything, it really opens my eyes to how blessed I am!


  1. I know! I watch the news and hear and see the slums and horrible conditions that people in Asia and Africa have to live in, and then I realize just how easy American lives are.

  2. Very sweet. And yes sometimes we forget how blessed we are.
