I was helping Parker (10) wash the dishes and we both were frustrated that the water was backing up in the garbage disposal again. Like I could actually feel myself getting angry over crappy engineering. Then I was shocked by my foolishness almost instantly.

What about the people who don’t even have a sink, running water, or even food to put in a garbage disposal?
Is the average American the one who scripture refers to as “the rich”? Being rich to one person here in the USA is “having a million dollars”, where being rich to 2,000,000,000 people around the world is “having running water.”
I told my sister a good idea would be to start a “Blessings / Perspective Family Camp.”
Here is the thought. A family takes a 2 week vacation. The first week (7 days), these families fly to Arizona, pay $1000 to live in a small clay house with no running water and have to ask / work for their daily supply of food. Then the second week, they fly to Cayman Islands or something for a big relaxing vacation. Tell me these families would appreciate their blessings!
