“When you stop and think about it, the fact is that the vast majority of us have much for which to be thankful – we just tend to be oblivious to it. For example, most people never give a second thought to the myriad of activities that are occurring within their bodies every second they are alive. Additionally, those of us living in first-world countries rarely, if ever, feel grateful for such things as electricity, indoor plumbing, relatively safe drinking water, and much, much more. Instead, most of us tend to focus on what is missing in our lives, and ignore all of the blessings we already have. In the United States especially, people take so much for granted. This is truly amazing; in view of the fact that even our nation’s poorest people have a higher standard of living than most of the population in developing countries.”
