Often on Saturday nights, after the girls have showered, when we're all just sitting around, Chas likes to give us something to be thankful for, to ratchet up our family's sense of well-being and gratitude. He turns the TV to a station that broadcasts people who are so much worse off than we are. We watch in silence, sometimes wincing at the painful scenes playing out in someone else's world. It isn't fun, it's rather grim, but we all feel so thankful not to be those poor, poor people.
If you'd like to feel blessed, too, just watch.
And this one, too, just because I can.
