Have you ever had one of those days that just makes you realize how blessed you are? Well today was like that for me. I have friends that are being forced to deal with problems that no teenager should have to face alone. It just made me take a good look at my life and realize how good I have it. Just having two parents who love eachother and me puts me in a minority of the world’s population. Their support has allowed me to go to college, pursue numerous weird hobbies and become someone I hope they are proud of. I’ve realized that my life so far has been pretty easy.
Then I wonder: Why me? Why did God give me this wonderful life and not the girl across town? I am not any more deserving of it than another person. One thing keeps coming to mind as I think about this: To whom much is given, much is expected. In recognizing that I am blessed, it is important to see others have not been so lucky. If I have the opportunity and resources to help them, I should.
