"I tell my daughter that she is so lucky. I didn't have much in the Phillipines. I went to school with my clothes torn. If you get sick you just stay in the corner. You just wait to die," she said in broken English.
We are so blessed. We have a home, a bed, food in the refrigerator, friends, enough money to spend on a frappuccino, access to a hospital, new clothes, and how do we respond? By complaining that the barista is moving to slowly, that our complexions aren't good enough, and that we were just slighted by so-and-so.
We are blessed. We have so much to give.
