Choices

Gratitude List 29/11/2018

There’s something about standing in the rain. I have no idea what it is, but I feel quite serene and I enjoy it. I’m grateful to have the ability to feel this way because I’m also aware that I’m able to feel this way because at any given time I can choose to:

– put on a warm and waterproof coat, a dry woolley hat and use an umbrella.
– go in my home, with central heating, a dry mattress, plenty of food and a hot shower.
– change out of my wet clothing into something else and if desperate make a purchase.
– afford to temporarily shelter in a coffee shop without fearing being kicked out because the customers might complain.

Thousands don’t have these often ignored blessings.
