My cousin and friend, Helen Budelli sent this to me and it is definitely worth sharing and great food for thought.
If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace ...you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy.
If you woke up this morning with more health than illness ... you are more blessed than the million who will not survive this week.
If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation... you are ahead of 500 million people in the world.
If you can attend a church meeting without fear of harassment,arrest, torture, or death ... you are more blessed than three billionpeople in the world.
If your parents are still alive and still married ...you are very rare, even in the United States.
If you hold up your head with a smile on your face and are truly thankful ... you are blessed because the majority can, but most do not.
If you can hold someone's hand, hug them or even touch them on the shoulder ... you are blessed because you can offer healing touch.
If you can read this message, you just received a double blessing in that someone was thinking of you, and furthermore, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world that cannot read at all.
Have a good day, count your blessings, and pass this along to remindeveryone else how blessed we all are.

Kripalu-is located right in the beautiful Bershires in Lenox, Mass. and I took the trip up with my good friend George Perlov, who runs his own Social Marketing Research Consulting business and formerly headed up all research at The Ad Council. He is terrific, a true professional and visionary in his field and a real devotee to Kripalu. And now I am too!
Here are two pictures--one of George right as we were leaving after our totally healthy weekend and then all the food that would never be on the shelves of Kripalu or that we would ever eat--yet as we commented, many people do.....
