I am 40 years old – many don’t live that long.
I have been married for 13 years and I still love my wife – many marriages don’t last.
I have four healthy and happy children – many can’t have children, many lose their children.
I have a safe and comfortable home – many are homeless.
I am financially secure – many are overwhelmed by financial problems.
I have a job which, despite problems, I basically love – many cannot find any work, let alone something so vocational.
I have faith in God, which enables a profound engagement with life – many find their lives meaningless.
I have hope for the future – many know only despair.
I believe that there are kings in previous centuries who would be envious of my life.
Surely, I am the one who is very blessed.
(So stop complaining Sam!)
