APPRECIATE WHAT YOU HAVE

Humans have a tendency to complain about what they do not have instead of their appreciation coming from what they do have.  I once experienced something I will never forget as a priest making the rounds, in the  Children hospital in Los Angeles, California. I went to the burn center and saw disfigured children who were smiling and their true beauty of their soul and spirit come out. It was hard to withhold the tears. No one complained about the little paper booties they had to wear on their feet while they were in the ward. Why you ask? ~~ Because there were also children there with no feet!



The above beautiful human, Nick Vojicic has been an incredible inspiration to children and adults. Below is a link to his web site!

Please stop a moment and feel blessed that you see the sunrise each day and that you are vertical. Be thankful for your health and the love that surrounds you on a daily basis.
