It is only 9:45pm here in Las Vegas. We have been gone all day. We spent the morning and half of the afternoon with my mother in law. The rest of the afternoon and evening we have been at our friends house. They made a lovely dinner for us and I finally got to do a bit of knitting. Now we are back at the hotel and neither of us are real excited about going back down to the casino area to gamble. We are pretty tired from our outings today.
I am starting to have a hard time coming up with things I am thankful for. I don't want to seem petty in some of the items I had picked out yet, they are things I think all of us take for granted. So today, I am thankful for having plenty of food to eat. People all over the world go to bed hungry each night and may not know if there will be any food for them the next day to abate their hunger. This is something most of us do not experience. How many times have I said "I am hungry" and then head out to my kitchen and open a cupboard or fridge and pull out something to eat. How often have I taken that action for granted. Yes, I am very thankful for having plenty to eat.
I always liked the way the Mormons dedicated a meal on Sundays to those who needed it. They skipped their Sunday meal and donated it. It made them appreciate what it's like to go hungry and help someone else to be full. I think they did eat something during the day but not the big Sunday meals we used to have on Sundays back in the day.ReplyDelete
