    This is pretty amazing, and sometimes hard to believe. Most of us have never really seen poverty and what they speak of. I was lucky enough to see it first hand in the Dominican Republic. Most of the people there live in shacks… literally, run-down shacks that are about the size of your living room with a roof barely on. It made me cry. I had serious culture shock. I truly learned to appreciate the things I have after visiting (especially a toilet seat and hot water). It’s also what set me on a path to simplification in my life. I still splurge on the things I love (art, scrapbooking, reading), but I try to remember the things I do have and have been lucky enough to obtain. I thank God every day.
