God Bless America
Today I am thanking God for all that he has given me. Sometimes it takes a little reality check to stop and think about what we have in life. Last night we went to the grocery store because I didn't want anything we had in the house so I waited out in the car while hubby went inside really quick to grab a couple things, and I was just hanging out in the mini cooper listening to music when this sweet old lady wearing a "God Bless America" T-shirt knocked on my window. I rolled it down, and she said "Excuse me miss, but do you have two dollars so I could get myself something to eat?" I felt like the WORST person in the world but I had to tell her no because I don't carry cash only cards, I ALWAYS lose cash. Hubby was still in the store so I really didn't have anything to give her. Then my husband comes walking out a few minutes later and is about to get in the car when she comes back and asks him, so of course he gave it to her, and then I felt even worse like GEEZ she probably thinks I'm a BITCH sitting here in my little air conditioned car not wanting to hand over two dollars!
On the way home I was thinking it's only a couple blocks to the grocery store and I'm kinda glad to live close to a neighborhood like that so that I always have a reminder nearby to keep myself from forgetting how good my life is, and how priveleged I am to live where I do. So today I just want to be thankful for everything I have, and where I have been lucky enough to go in life. I hope this gives you a little encouragement to do the same, I think it's perfect for right before 4th of July too! We are celebrating really big this year!
