Appreciate what you have.

The corona virus has pushed me to be more open minded about other people’s situations. Often times we go through life not taking in the perspectives of other people’s lives. So hearing what other people are going through has made me appreciate the things I have in my life . I have learned to not take the small things for granted and be mindful that what I might find as an inconvenience for me may be a blessing for someone else.On one of my virtual staff meetings I heard that people were having difficulty in household in pbc with more than one child because they all couldn’t have their own laptop. I would have never thought of that as a potential issue for anyone because I only have one sibling who I don’t have to share a computer with.In that moment we realized that it was good thing we hadn’t gotten my sister a laptop from the county because there are children who don’t have any computer access at all. SO us getting her a computer would have been taking away from a child that may have no other computer access in the home.So although her computer doesn’t work properly sometimes,she has access to other people with computers and its better than not having one at all.
