If you...

A picture is worth a thousand words, sometimes more, and I woke up this morning with this thought on my mind.  I hope you all have a wonderful day and enjoy the long weekend.  My college roommate is coming to visit, so we have a weekend of working out, catching up and taking in the best DC has to offer.  Aren't girlfriends the best?! 

"If you have food in your fridge, clothes on your back, a roof over your head and a place to sleep you are richer than 75% of the world.

If you have money in the bank, your wallet, and some spare change you are among the top 8% of the world’s wealthy.

If you woke up this morning with more health than illness you are more blessed than the million people who will not survive this week.

If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the agony of imprisonment or torture, or the horrible pangs of starvation you are luckier than 500 million people alive and suffering.

If you can read this message you are more fortunate than 3 billion people in the world who cannot read it at all."

This truly puts things into perspective. I have food in my fridge, a bed in which to sleep and friends that I love and appreciate -- for each of these, I am truly blessed and thankful.  xx
