Found this little gem the other day, kind of makes you think about your own problems doesn't it?
Pause For Thought
If you are in good health, youíre in better shape than the 10,000 people a day that are told that their condition is terminal. If you woke up this morning, youíre ahead of the one million people who didnít survive the week. If you can sit down, read the paper and drink a cup of coffee, youíre better off than the 500 million men, women and children around the world who are experiencing the horrors of war, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation.
If you can attend church without threat, youíve a freedom envied by two billion others who have never been inside one, If you have food, clothes and a roof over your head, youíre richer than 75% of the earths inhabitants. (Actually, your dustbin eats better than they do!
If you have money in the bank, youíre among the worlds top 8%. If you can read this, youíre ahead of one-third of the people on this planet who are illiterate.
If youíve fallen into the trap of expecting much but appreciating little, itís time you remembered, repented and gained a little perspective.
