America has a reputation as “The Land of Plenty”.
Thousands upon thousands of immigrants made dangerous journeys to reach this country. Hard work should be rewarded. Everyone needs an opportunity.
Americans strive for more. I think it’s almost in the air. We want more food (or more exotic). Another change of clothes, pair of shoes, warmer coat would be good. Thinking of an upgrade or addition to your home? Moving to a larger or more secure apartment?
This week I urge you to pause, retreat, and give thanks for the basics.
Food to eat. Clothing to wear. Shelter from extreme weather. Family, friends, and neighbors to offer an opportunity to be social.
