    A newly arrived soul in Heaven was met by St. Peter. The saint toured
    the soul around Heaven. Both of them walked side by side inside a large
    workroom filled with angels.

    St. Peter stopped in front of the first section and said, "This is the
    Receiving Section. Here, all the petitions to God said in prayer are
    received". The soul looked at the section, and it was terribly busy
    so many angels sorting out petitions written on voluminous paper sheets
    from all the people of the world.

    They walked again until they reached the 2nd section, and St. Peter
    the soul, "This is the Packaging and Delivery Section. Here, the graces
    and blessings the people asked for are packed and delivered to the
    persons who asked for them down on earth."

    The soul saw how busy it was. There were so many angels working in
    that room, since so many blessing were being packed and delivered to

    Finally at the farthest corner of the room, the soul stopped at the
    section. To the surprise of the soul, only one angel stayed there idly,
    doing nothing. "This is the Acknowledging Section," St. Peter told the
    soul. "How is it that, there is no work here?" "That's the sad thing,"
    St. Peter answered. "After the people received the blessings they asked
    for, very few send their acknowledgments". "How does one acknowledge
    God's blessing?" "Simple," St. Peter answered. "Just say, "'Thank you,

    Thank you Lord, for giving me the chance to share this message with
    others and also, for giving me so many wonderful people to share this
    with. If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a
    overhead and a place to sleep .. you are richer than 75% of this world.

    If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a
    dish someplace .. you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy.

    If you woke up this morning with more health than illness . . you are
    more blessed than the million who will not survive this week.

    If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of
    imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation you are
    ahead of 500 million people in the world.

    If you can attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest,
    torture, or death are more blessed than three billion people in
    the world.

    If your parents are still alive and still married .. you are very

    If you hold up your head with a smile on your face and are truly
    thankful .. you are blessed because the majority can, but most do not.

    If you can hold someone's hand, hug them or even touch them on the
    shoulder .. you are blessed because you can offer healing touch.

    If you can read this message, you just received a double blessing in
    that.. someone was thinking of you, and furthermore, you are more
    blessed than over two billion people in the world that cannot read at

    Have a good day, count your blessings, and pass this along to remind
    everyone else how blessed we all are.
