Five Minute Friday: Bare
i have never had truly bare cupboards. empty shelves mocking me. a fridge void of milk, cheese and other 'essentials'. i have never known what it is like to have to skip a meal or worse not be able to feed my children. i have never had to make the tough choice between eggs or milk with money only for one.
i hardly ever remember that this is such a privilege. i almost never think about the people who don't have these luxuries. my world is so completely insulated sometimes that i forget about people who face these harsh realities of life. it saddens me that i am so blind to these things sometimes.
i may not have all of my wants, but i certainly have every single one of my needs met and so much more.
