  1. Just as I was reading this, my niece brought me a cup of tea and I had another thing to be grateful for. I am Muslim by faith and we have been taught to say Alhamdo lillah (Praise the Lord) for all the things, good and bad, that come to us. And, I must say that your article would make even an ungrateful person to be thankful to the One Almighty God who has blessed most of us with more than the things we could ask for. Thanks for the article. I am reblogging it.
