Okay, I’ll be frank.
There is not one day that I have thanked God for what I have now. I have great parents, a beautiful house to live in, the best friends and the most important
A TV !!!
I am sad that I don’t have the best dress or the latest iPhone which all my friends have but not me.
And I throw a tantrum and go to my room only to find the iPhone, dress or something even better lying on my bed the next minute. But the next day I am sad again as I want something else again.. and that cycle continues forever.
Now now when I have time I think about this….(when I am not busy throwing tantrums )
I look around just to find a girl..maybe my age.. holding a baby begging around.
My attention drifts toward her dress…
it is tattered and in terrible condition. Why isn’t she sad??
I am touched…
imagine, instead of buying the latest iPhone, if I gave that money to her, she could feed herself and the baby for months.
I go back to my parents’ room and throw a tantrum…
for something else this time…
for that girl.
