If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof over your head and a place to sleep…

                                                                  You are richer than 75% of this world.

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 wealthy

If you woke up this morning with more health than illness…

                         You are more blessed than the millions 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 the world.

If your parents have a good relationship, are still alive and still married..

                                                               You are very rare.

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 a 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 the two billion people in the world that cannot read at all.

I found a paper in our house with this on it and I wanted to share all of it with you guys, because it makes you think about how blessed you are.  And you think twice about complaining and looking at your life and saying how unlucky you are. I’m not really sure who this was written by but I do give credit who discovered how amazingly blessed they are. I was working on finding these pictures for a while so it took about a week to get everything in order to do this.

Thanks for reading.

Sincerely,

Alicia Dunk
