To my kids..

Hey kids, you know all that harping I've been doing lately?

You remember - blah blah blah you are so lucky and don't even know it. Blah blah blah so many other people in the world would love to just have your problems blah blah blah. Blah blah blah so much more fortunate than you even realize. Blah blah blabbity blabbity blab....roof over your heads, heat to keep you warm, air conditioning to keep you cool, food in your belly, clothes on your back, shoes on your feet, a doctor if you're sick...yada yada yada. Why don't your understand that YOU ARE SO LUCKY!

Here's a much more concise way to explain it.

My hope for both of you is that you'll never have to pray to have a life like the one you have now, and that one day you'll learn to appreciate how blessed you truly are.
