I'm so Grateful , aren't you?
Take a look at other families around the world. Check out what they buy in a week. Notice what they are able to buy with their money.
It's so interesting, and humbling.
The conveniences we have.
Our variety of choices.
I'm very humbled.
A lot of families in the pictures seem very fortunate, but what about Ecuador or Chad?
Kuwait has subsidized groceries, and who knew they ate fries, and cornflakes.
It's fascinating. What about all the soda everyone seems to drink, wow!
We rarely drink soda at my house, I had no idea it was a world wide indulgence.
I also realize it's a luxury that my family can change our diet for a week and just "go vegan," and for the fun of it, at that.
Enjoy your simple blessings.
