Its the time of year where stress levels are through the roof! People in town are on edge, walking on eggshells. I'm one of them. I, however, am not robbing banks or going out in a blast of sheriff gunfire. I can't believe the things people do when they're desperate.
I am so thankful for the roof over my family's head, and food on their bellies. I'm thankful for the car that works, the heat that runs. I'm thankful for the electricity that's on, water that's running, and gas fire me to cook with. I am so thankful for the health of my loved ones, and the ability to take them to the doctor when they need medical attention.
I'm so grateful for all of these things, but feel so selfish in feeling that its just not enough. I'm human. What I have isn't enough, I want more. How lame is that?
It's the holidays, a time for giving, a time for loving, and a time for being grateful. I know I'm not perfect, I know I'm greedy for wanting more than what I have, but I appreciate the things I do have.
Please go about your day, every time you are feeling greedy, think of the things you have that you appreciate. It's so easy to say nothing, but I know you appreciate your cup of coffee, or your dog, or your heater in the car that you also appreciate. Appreciating little things in your life sure do make the crappy things a lot easier to deal with.
I hope everyone has a happy Tuesday.
