I really am thankful that I've never once worried that I would go hungry. And while I'm deeply grieved that people go hungry all over the world, I am thankful that I got a dose of reality when I lived in Nairobi. It is not often that you second guess buying a $4 movie ticket because you wonder how many kids are in the slum right behind it going hungry that night.
I'm also thankful that I can enjoy my daily bread. I spent too many years being terrified of food and gaining weight. Even once I physically "got better", I still felt enslaved in my mind to a strange fear and obsession with food. I begged God to heal my mind and heart, and then one day, in the closest thing to a miracle I've ever experienced, HE did! And, I am so thankful He rescued me.
