10/03 - From Thought Question


There are so many things I feel I take for granted.  My freedom and the choices available to me stand out.  I was grumbling at the grocery store the other day about how crowded it was and that I couldn't find what I was looking for (I was at the largest Kroger Store in the US).  And then I stopped and thought about third world countries where gathering water is a challenge and here I was complaining about having to push a cart through a huge store where basically everything was available to me.

What do you take for granted?

I try not to but I sometimes take my eyesight for granted. I spent yesterday traveling to Seattle for my annual retinal exam, found out I still do not have macular degeneration, and again am so grateful! xoO

We are pretty spoiled here in America. We truly are. I think about what Olivi said--I don't know what I would do if I couldn't draw pictures, or see the world around me. And what would I do if I couldn't hear? Or read? We are so spoiled.
