And the not so obvious:
I have a mortgage I get to pay every month.
I have groceries I get to buy every week.
I have kids that drive me insane.
I have a husband that cares enough about me to voice his opinion.
I have a body that wakes up every morning.
I have a car that constantly needs gas.
It's so easy to be thankful for the "main things" in life. But, to be thankful for the stuff that maybe we think we'd rather not have? That's difficult.
But, you see, if we didn't have those things, if they were replaced with other things, maybe they'd be worse.
I don't even want to imagine the worst case scenario.
I had a friend from high school recently contact me. After 16 yrs. Through facebook.
He looked through my profile, my pictures.
He said "It's obvious you are happy. And no one deserves it more than you!"
You know what, D.? You're right!
I do deserve my life.
I wouldn't trade it for anything.
