Sometimes I need reminding of just exactly how blessed I am...
complain that I have nothing to wear - a child walks the streets
When I can't decide what I want to eat - a mother adds ketchup to her baby's bottle for nourishment.
When I gripe about the cold weather - a group of teens burn paper for warmth.
When I get upset with my children for not cleaning their rooms - a young girl wonders if she will ever have a family.
When I see a homeless person and judgingly turn away - a boy sits on the street corner losing all hope.
As I write this on paper, I realize how selfish I sound. It is actually quite embarrassing to think of how much I have and yet can feel like it still isn't enough.
Believe it or not, there is a blessing in my selfish thinking...it prompts me to take action for others who are in need, which is why I am focused today on joining hundreds of colleagues as we pack 12,500 survival kits that will be distributed to the homeless youth of San Diego. Today, I will take the focus off of myself and give it to all the "angels" who live on the street.
I am eternally grateful for the organization Urban Street Angels that walks the streets each day to make a difference in the lives of these children who lack everything I take for granted. Today, in partnership with them, we will Awaken Grace, Inspire Hope, and Illuminate Love.
