Sitting here at my computer watching the birds at the feeder makes me realize how lucky I am to be in such a wonderful, beautiful, FREE country where I can walk down a busy street and not have to worry about terrorist waiting to blow up the neighbourhood. I have dependable, (almost) free health care, clean water to drink and a good supply of foods available at the local store so I don't have to wait in line for a daily meal.
There are lots of places in the World today where just getting out of bed in the morning can be frightning. People starve to death on the city streets in card-board boxes. You regularly hear of people getting blown up on their way to work in the morning on trains and buses and random shootings at cross-walks...not to say it couldn't happen here.
Here in Nova Scotia I guess we're agreeable with our neighbours. Most will help you in your in trouble, be it a car broke down on side of the road or helping a person cross the street. Our Christmas Daddy's helps thousands of children aand their familys at Christmas and local food banks feed those in need. Even our Welfare system is one of the best so people who can't support them selves can have a hand till they get back on thir feet...There are programs to help people go back to school if they can't find work and train them. Anyone can start a business and get help with this if they need to.
Stop and think how lucky we are ♥
Remember to do at least one thing everyday that you don't get thanks for but helps a person or situation ♥
Love & Light to You in this 2011.
