Thankful Thursday – A little late :S

In my defense I had this ready to post yesterday but the internet at my job was acting up so it didn’t get posted :S

Some one asked me about my recent Africa trip today. (For those of you who didn’t know I took a 3 1/2 week trip to Ghana, West Africa this past summer with MTT Ministries. I had the time of my life and I would do it again in a heart beat!) So when I was thinking of a good topic to write my Thankful Thursday on all I could think of was: Toilet Paper!


I know some of you are scratching your head and thinking “Did she just say…. what I think she said?” Yes I did! I am thankful for toilet paper. When you go to a 3rd world country such as Africa you com back thankful for the small things such as water you can drink straight from the tap, fruits and veggies you don’t have to bleach before eating and clean public toilets with complementary toilet paper.

The Lord has given us spoiled American’s so much that we take for granted. Everytime someone asks me about my trip I always say that I think every person in America should visit a country like Africa or Brazil or the Philippines so that they would learn to be thankful for ALL the small things we take for granted!
