Count Your Blessings and Give Back

In Uncategorized on May 3, 2009 at 4:54 am

Poverty is terrible—needless to say.  It is something that is unpredictable, something that can come out of no where and snatch you.  I am not of the mindset that it is impossible for me to become impoverished—I am simply not that bold.  However, I do choose to count my blessings.  I am extremely fortunate to have clothes on my back, food on my table, and a roof over my head at the present moment.  I do not take it for granted, just extremely thankful.  I have challenged many—politicians and the American public—on this blog.  I have challenged you to take a giant leap in helping those who are less fortunate.  It is also time for me to take it to the “next level”.  I give to those who are in need on a regular basis—but it’s not enough.  I feel I can do so much more.  I feel it is worth it to spend a little less on me and more on others.  This is not a posting debating policy, criticizing politicians, or speaking toward the future of America and poverty; it is simply a post expressing that IT’S NOT ABOUT ME. (A posting like this is long overdue).  Life is about giving back to a cause that is greater than yourself—I want to become a major player in that cause.count-your-blessings5
