Are you feeling down? Read this

This  is one of the nicest e-mails I have seen and is  so true:

I dreamt that I went to Heaven and an  angel was showing me around. We walked  side-by-side inside a large workroom filled with  angels.. My angel guide stopped in front of the first section and said,   ‘This is the Receiving Section. Here, all  petitions to God said in prayer are received. ‘

I looked around in this area, and it was  terribly busy with so many angels sorting out  petitions written on voluminous paper sheets and  scraps from people all over the world.

Then we moved on down a long corridor  until we reached the second section.
The  angel then said to me, ‘ This is the Packaging  and Delivery Section. Here, the graces and  blessings the people asked for are processed and  delivered to the living persons who asked for  them. ‘ I noticed again how busy it was there.  There were many angels working hard at that  station, since so many blessings had been  requested and were being packaged for delivery  to Earth.

Finally at the farthest end of  the long corridor we stopped at the door of a  very small station. To my great surprise, only  one angel was seated there, idly doing nothing.   ‘This is the Acknowledgment Section,’ my  angel friend quietly admitted to me. He seemed  embarrassed.  ‘How is it that there is no  work going on here?’ I asked.

‘So sad,’  the angel sighed. ‘After people receive the  blessings that they asked for, very few send  back acknowledgments.’

‘How does one  acknowledge God’s blessings? ‘ I asked.

‘Simple,’ the angel answered. Just say,  ‘ Thank you, Lord. ‘

‘What blessings  should they acknowledge? ‘ I asked.

‘If  you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on  your back, a roof 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, you are among the top 8%  of the world ‘s wealthy.’

‘And if  you get this on your own computer, you are part  of the 1% in the world who has that opportunity.  ‘

‘If you woke up this morning with more  health than illness … You are more blessed  than the many who will not even survive this  day.’

‘If you have never  experienced the fear in battle, the loneliness  of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the  pangs of starvation .. You are ahead of 700  million people in the world. ‘

‘If you  can attend a place of worship without the fear  of harassment, arrest, torture or death you are  envied by, and more blessed than, three billion  people in the world.. ‘

‘If your parents  are still alive and still married …you are  very rare. ‘

‘If you can hold your head  up and smile, you are not the norm,    you’re unique to all those in doubt and despair.  ‘
Ok, what now? How can I start?

If  you can read this message, you just received a  double blessing in that someone was thinking of  you as very special and you are more blessed  than over two billion people in the world who  cannot read at all.
Have a good day,  count your blessings, and if you care to,  pass this along to remind everyone else how  blessed we all are.

ATTN: Acknowledge  Dept.
‘Thank you  Lord, for giving me the ability to share this  message and for giving me so many wonderful  people with whom to share it. ‘

If you  have read this far, and are thankful for all  that you have been blessed with, how can you  not share it with others????
