What separates privilege from entitlement is
gratitude. Wear gratitude like a cloak, and
it will feed every corner of your life...
When they say life is not fair some people sure know
exactly what this means Yesterday Arvid and I were
out touring San Juan. We walked around some shops
and checked out a few things. In one of the gift
shops we met a woman from England.
Of course I started talking to her and before
you knew it we had a picture of what her life has
been since hurricane Maria hit the island.
She has now been living in PR for 13 years, and
was doing really well. Good job good home, and a
comfortable life. Maria came. Destroyed her home.
She lost her job because there was no job to go
Savings are all gone, but she found a job in a gift shop.
She said she was so grateful for this job and
that suddenly life is looking up again.
She like so many lost everything yet she was pleasant,
helpful, cheerful, and positive about her outlook in life.
Today once again I am grateful and thankful even though
sometimes I think that life has not been fair to me,
Then I hear about the “other” side and I realize
once again that I may not have everything I
want, but I sure have everything I need.
Friday here again. This has been one very rainy week,
and today does not seem to be any different, but on the
other hand all of our Friday outings have had rain.
be thankful and grateful for all the blessings we have
in our lives, for what we do not realize is that what
we take for granted someone else is praying for.
Don’t pray when it rains if you don’t
pray when the sun shines. We can choose
to be grateful no matter what...
