National Thank You Month Is January

Watch the video for this Forward Steps post

National Thank You Month is January… enjoy a gratitude poem and a gratitude video by Louie Schwartzberg, accompanied by powerful words from Benedictine monk Brother David Steindl-Rast, that you might enjoy sharing with friends. Louie’s video begins at 3:45 minutes into the video. It’s worth watching his introduction from the beginning, also.

If you woke up this morning
with more health than illness,
you are more blessed than the
million people around the world
that won’t survive the week.

If you have never experienced
the danger of battle,
the loneliness of imprisonment,
the agony of torture or
the pangs of starvation,
you are ahead of 20 million
people around the world.

If you have food in your refrigerator,
clothes on your back, a roof over
your head and a place to sleep,
you are richer than 75% of this world.

National Thank You Month - Forward Steps Blog quote 1500pxIf you have money in the bank,
in your wallet, and spare change
in a dish someplace, you are among
the top 8% of the world’s wealthy.

If you hold up your head with a smile
on your face and are truly thankful,
you are blessed because the majority
can, but most do not.

If you can hold someone’s hand, hug
them or even touch them on the shoulder,
you are blessed because you can
offer God’s healing touch.

If you can read this message,
you are more blessed than over
750 million people in the world
who cannot read anything at all!
