Hear are just a couple of the stories I have received at work this month, which remind me of all I have to be thankful for.
Nivas is thankful his family now has access to clean water, after losing his 1st wife, his son, and his own hand to arsenic poisoning from well water.
Antonia in the Dominican Republic is thankful her twin sons are getting medical care.
Eyerusalem is thankful for these street children in Addis, whom she was able to give a home to.
Muthumari is thankful to be back in school, after being rescued from bonded labor.
Richard is thankful for one eye to be able to read with at university in Kenya, having had the other one removed as a child when his parents couldn't afford cataract surgery.
Sri is thankful for the $10 she earns rummaging through garbage each week. That's $10 after she willingly gives 40% to her church, which is undergoing persecution in their mostly Muslim neighborhood.
Makes you think, doesn't it?
