Being thankful in the face of adversity

I was once again reminded today of how we sometimes cannot see the forest for the trees. Sometimes our own problems are so big, we do not appreciate how a little kindness or thoughtfulness from our side can greatly improve somebody's life.

The problem that I am presently facing is the lack of cashflow - getting the money that I have worked for to get into my pocket. A dear friend sent me a movie showing a child too hungry even too eat! AND I am the one complaining.

So today my prayer is:
"Thank you for reminding me of all the blessings I have received. May I never forget to offer my assistance to others."
