be more grateful, be more patient.
I had a four hour drive and international news casts in my ear to review my life and every little thing I take for granted.
I am thankful to God for the clean water I didn’t have to walk miles to obtain from the same source I wash my clothes in
I am thankful to God for the nights I sleep thru, without having to sleep in funeral clothes.
I am thankful for not being soaked with acid while on my commute to school because ‘women don’t belong there’ in some minds.
I am so thankful for every morsel of food I put in my mouth, for the clean change of clothes I put on everyday, for the constant electricity that lights up my house without fail, for the completely healthy hair, skin, bones, ligaments, blood, and whatever else that makes my temple, for my bed- which could have been a sheet on the floor of a mud hut instead. I am thankful for God’s love in my life, for allowing me to grow for twenty-two years unharmed, free from disease and disorder, clothed, fed, and quenched because I could have been a Christian fleeing my home in Iraq tonight, or a Palestinian in Gaza, or a Syrian girl with no clue on when anything good will come again. I am grateful, over grateful for all the good that I am undeservingly blessed with that I take for granted. I am ashamed of any moment I felt like I was being served the lesser hand. I no longer believe in ‘luck’, because nothing compares to all work God has done with me.
I cannot explain to anyone how thankful I am for the life that I’ve been allowed to live.
i’ve been meaning to go on a diet for about 5 years
when I was like 9 my neighbors asked me to watch their fish and cat while they went on vacation and I was like “lol k” and while they were gone tHE FUCKING FISH DIED so when they got home I apologized to the mom and she was just like “no need to apologize, I turned the filter off so they would die because they are too much work. You did nothing wrong” and she gave me 20 bucks and that is the story of my first contracted murder
