I wept because I had no shoes, until I saw a man who had no feet. ~Ancient Persian saying
The quote says what I am grateful for and letting go of. Simple, but says a lot.
This past weekend, we volunteered to help Child United pack over a hundred over-sized boxes of clothing, shoes, books and toys for kids affected in the recent typhoons that devastated parts of Central Philippines. These shoes were donated by a child who still wore them, they still fit him. I was told that one of them was his favorite pair… but he donated them anyway, because he knew another child thousands of miles away (a child he doesn’t even know) needs them more than he does. I am also thankful for big and kind-hearted kids who do these amazing things.
Look at your shoes, reflect on all the journeys they have been through with you. Be they sweet or bitter memories, there are always blessings to be counted.
Have a great week everyone.
