We often take things for granted. But we only realise what we have if we're about to loose it. We forget to cherish what we have, we don't even think bad things could happen to us. But they do. We need to stop and think for a while, look at what we HAVE.
Once I've visitd Nicaragua, it's a very beautiful country. Warm too. What I've noticed is, though people don't have as much as most of us have, they are so happy with what they do have. They're more appreciative too. I remember, the peopel we were staying with, they had two children. I had this game I had for a long time, it still looked new : the pig game. The first evening, we played and they loved it. After we finished playing, I told them they could have it. The kids couldn't believe it. They loved it and thanked me. It was just a simple game I gave them, but to them it was priceless.
It doens't take much to make someone happy, we only have to find out what and appreciate what we receive.
