I saw this photo essay, called What the World Eats, at Mommy Life and I thought it was so interesting. There are families shown from all around the globe with the foods that they normally eat. Each photo also has an amount the family spends on a week's groceries.
This is a family from Ecuador. The first thing I noticed is how happy they look! (Click on the picture to enlarge.) Just look at the smiles on their faces and notice the 2 babies playing on the right . I also noticed their little house. I looks like some sort of very small hut and their all natural food is displayed on the floor on a layer of straw. This family is reported to spend $31.55 weekly on food and it looks like they have 7 children.
Now, I have had me some bad days, friends, but there is just no excuse to have a stinkin' attitude for the camera. I have plastered on many a smile that I didn't feel like smiling for the sake of not burdening others with my bad attitude. Just look at Miss Thing there on the right with her arms all crossed up on her chest. She and I would be due for a mighty long talk if I were her mom.
I want to be like the first family, don't you? Just as joyous as I can be with what the Lord, in His infinite mercy, has supplied for me. Whether it be a little or a lot.
