Day 22 of Gratitude.
It’s easy to point out flaws in our childhoods. Way in which we were let down.
But we often forget just how rough many children have it. How blessed we were to have the childhood we did, even with its warts.
What are some things you can appreciate about your childhood?
And what are you grateful for today?
My parents divorced when I was young, but both remained an active part in my life. Also, both supported the other. There wasn’t the “badmouthing the other” that goes on sometimes in families.
We always had ample food to eat. We had clean clothes to wear. Right now in the world about 200 million children under the age of 5 are suffering from malnutrition. This happens in every single country on earth. We should have handled this issue long, long ago. No child should go hungry.
Today I am grateful for all the people who help me with my writing projects, from giving suggestions on book covers to offering feedback on what I write. I appreciate all that support immensely!
