I went for a doctor’s appointment and saw a man shackled in his hands and feet. He was also brought in for his own doctor’s appointment by police Sheriffs; And my heart just melted.
While I have no clue as to what crimes he must have committed, seeing him bound in that situation reminded me of the many things we take for granted:
. Our Freedoms- To choose. To dream. To set goals and accomplish them.
. Our health- So many people are sick in hospitals. Many have lost loved ones from illnesses including covid19. And many more are dealing with a dire diagnosis.
. Our Relationships- To live is to love. And to love is to live! Instead of creating bridges and celebrating our differences/uniqueness, we spend our time hating and tearing down each other.
For me, every extra day I get to spend here is precious. It’s a gift.
- To make a difference. To impact others for good.
And I am thankful for these blessings and do not take them for granted!
I am also thankful for my #linkedin connections! You all inspire me daily!
Have a great weekend!
