A Perfect Day
Yesterday was a perfect day. Why?
It's not as if anything exciting happened. No earth-shattering events occurred. In fact, it was fairly mundane.
Why was it perfect?
It was perfect because....
♥ I woke up and drew a breath. Many will not be able to do that today.
♥ I made three meals. There are people who don't know where their next meal is coming from. I have a house full of food.
♥ I turned on the faucet to take a shower, wash the dishes, run the laundry, and wash my hands. So many in this world do not have clean, running water.
♥ I taught my daughter. Some live in countries where freedom of education is unknown.
♥ I kissed and hugged my husband good-bye and hello. Many lost their spouse yesterday.
♥ I surfed the internet, watched a movie with my family, turned on the lights when it got dark. Many have no electricity.
♥ I turned up the heat when I got cold. Some have no heat nor home.
♥ I sewed for pleasure. Others are working in jobs they hate from sun-up to sun-down.
♥ I went to sleep in a nice soft bed. Many have no place to lay their head.
I am blessed far more than I ever realize and yet, I whine and fuss over the dumbest things. I complain and feel put out over silliness. I don't always realize how good I have it.
Yes, it was a perfect day.
