    We should Thank GOD EVERY DAY for what we have,so many have nothing and still find a way to accept it and be happy,this I think means the pressure of fitting in as well,the clothes we wear,cars,jewelry ect and our gluttony to WANT more,due to our selfish desires to fit in,we have so much to be thankful for,we are nothing without GOD and we need to constantly HUMBLE ourselves,no matter our agesAMEN
