You are BLESSED

So today, I had a scare. Someone who is dearly loved by me got hurt at work. I never thought that anything bad could touch him because he is such a wonderfully precious person. The day started just like any other day and everything was fine and then, out of nowhere, I get a phone call to go to the hospital. He is fine now and is at home and resting comfortably. The point to the story is that bad things can happen to anybody, no matter how good they are. Think of the people in your life and how important they are to you. Not just today but EVERYDAY, make sure to let them know how much you care. Doing this can be as simple as a kiss as they leave for work or a note to say ‘I love you’. You are blessed with these people and they shape your life more than you know.

Can You Imagine?

You watch your parents work hard everyday just to put food on the table and clothes on your back. They farm, fix car, bicycle, and motorcycle tires. They make cinder blocks for building houses. On weekends your father takes you fishing in the near by river and, even though you know it’s more for food than for fun, your dad tries to make it fun while teaching you how to survive. Your mother spends her days washing clothes in a heated iron pot outside or killing and dressing chickens to sell to the neighbors. There are no job opportunities for those who live in your country, so they risk their very lives, some at a the tender age of seventeen or eighteen to go to another country and try to make a living. Only once they get here to the United States, they are faced with hostility from people who don’t know them personally. They have no family, no church, and no job. They are completely and utterly alone.
Could you imagine if your way of life was so bad that you would subject yourself to these situations just to try to make a better life for you and yours? It seems so easy to say that they should come here the ‘right’ way, but do you have any idea how much that costs? Many of these people work sixty and seventy hour weeks for five-hundred or six-hundred pesos, which is about fifty or sixty U.S. dollars. In America, we would laugh at the thought of working for less than three-hundred dollars a week.http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=012-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0870781944&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr
