Just a thought

Tonite I was watching the show " The secret millionaire". What an amazing show that is. It amazes me that people with that kind of money don't really think about how many people live in this world. I watch them having to give up their normal lifestyle for a week and listen to how they say they take for granted what they have. I see the difference they make in peoples lives.I wish that I could make a difference like that in peoples lives. If I were a millionaire I think I would.
I don't know if you have ever just done a basic search on the internet and see the numbers of people who are asking for help. I have and sometimes when I feel like I am getting kicked in the teeth, I remember what some of their stories are like. People who are so affected by the economy today. People asking for help so that their kids don't miss out on Santa coming this year.
We all need to remember to be thankful for all the things we do have. We need to be thankful that we have families and that they are full of love and hope and dreams. No matter how rough we think we have it, there is always going to be someone out there who is worse than us. We need to take the time to send them a little prayer.

I enjoy watching that programme too. I love the fact that these people seem to enjoy for the first time in a long time that people love them for who they are than for the fact they are rich. To see them enjoy the pleasure of being themselves.

I hope you and your family have a great Christmas.

Best wishes,
