Dear Friends,

I wanted to share some statistics that have been an eye-opener to me, especially during this thanksgiving season:

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

you are richer than 75% of the world population.

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 million 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 around the globe.

If you can attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death…

you are more blessed tha three billion people in the world.

If you hold 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 read this message, you just received a double blessing in that someone was thinking of you, and furthermore,

you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world who cannot read at all.

  1. That is definitely some good food for thought. Sometimes we just don’t realize how truly blessed we are. Thanks for sharing this perspective, Margo!
