I'm Grateful to Have a Home

I'm sitting in International Plaza in a comfy booth with a.c. on reading the tbt* and sipping an ice cold Diet Pepsi and feeling very grateful not only for this moment but also that I have a home to go back to at the end of my day. On page 15 of the tbt* is a picture of the town of Manila- a poor community in the Philippines. Tropical Stom Saola ripped apart these people's already minimal living quarters and the image reminds me of how lucky I really am.

This morning I argued with my husband over how late he stayed up fearing he wouldn't make it to work on time. The truth is I get upset over stupid and petty things like that too often. I am grateful that this image was there to remind me how fortunate I am. Thank you for my home and all the luxuries I take for granted.
