GRATITUDE

Written by Trần Đình Hoành

Translated into English by Nguyễn Hà Huyền Vân

If we still have parents, we are more fortunate than the orphans.

If we have a house, we are more fortunate than the homeless.

If we have daily food, we are more fortunate than the hungry.

If we have clothing, we are more fortunate than the ragged.

If we are healthy, we are more fortunate than the sick.

If our body and limbs are normal, we are more fortunate than the disabled.

If we can go to school, we are more fortunate than those who cannot.

If we have a job, we are more fortunate than the jobless.

If we have a lover, we are more fortunate than the lonely.

If we have spouse and children, we are more fortunate than those with no family.

If we are grateful to God, we are more fortunate than the ignorant.

So, every morning, let’s spend a minute to thank God for giving us such a wealthy life!
