Every person alive today derives great benefit from comforts and pleasures that were not available in the past. All of the latest technological advances serve us to a remarkable degree. For all this we should be full of appreciation and gratitude.
Today, take a few minutes and make a list of things available for your use today that did not exist a few hundred years ago (or even 20 years ago!). Notice how these things help you and make life easier and more comfortable.
