Be thankful for what you have. We as a family are currently in Philadelphia for a week due to my husband’s work. We took a minute the other night to explore the city and we have found a lot of interesting things about Philly. We had an opportunity to visit the Liberty Bell which is an iconic symbol of American independence.
Next door to it is the tower of Independence Hall.
Now, here’s the irony of all these. A couple of blocks down you begin to notice a lot of homeless people sitting around helpless and have nowhere to go in this cold. It really did something to my heart when I saw them and it’s not just one or two people that you see. There were a large number of homeless people almost in each block. One would think that, in a city this iconic that has so much historical value to it, people would think those things are not as common here. Loews Philadelphia Hotel is a very nice hotel where we stayed and great hospitality is located in the heart of the city, yet you still see some people just lying on the street.
I am thankful to have the opportunity to visit and stay at a nice hotel with a great view, but it’s also important to stay humble. If you have an opportunity to lend a hand to someone who needs help, whether financially, accommodation, shelter, a word of advice or whatever the case may be, please follow your heart and do it. You will never know until you step out of your comfort zone. I’m challenging each one of you to not only be thankful for what you have but find someone who you can help. This doesn’t have to be a stranger but it might be someone close to you.
Continue to be thankful and willing to help others, God will pour out more blessings on you. Hope you enjoy reading and I’ll catch you in my next one.
