Lots to smile about

Take a breather amids the festive flurry and count worth celebrating.

How does one acknowledge God'sblessings?

What blessings should we acknowledge?

1.If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof over your head and a place to sleep at night, you are richer than 75% of other people in this world.

2. If you have money in the bank and your wallet, and spare change in a dish, you are among the top eight per cent of the world's wealthy population.
3. If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more blessed than the many who will not even survive this day.
4. If you have never experienced the fear of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation, you're ahead of 700 million people in the world.

5. If you can attend a mosque without the fear of harrassment, arrest, torture or death, you are envied by, and more blessed than, three billion people in the world.

6. If your parent are alive and still married, you are extremely lucky.


7. If you can hold your head up daily and smile, you are unique to all those in doubt and despair.
