my husband and i sponsor a child, and we got a letter from him recently. when i read his letters, i start to count my blessings:
~ i can stay at home to take care of my son
~ i didn't have to make food to sell on the streets in order to survive as a young teenager or child
~ my husband is able to go to school without having to make up the hours at work, so he's still home at a reasonable hour
~ i don't have to think before hitting the cash register at the grocery store "can i afford the milk this week?"
there are so many things i have to be thankful for. i think i will start making lists.
