I live a pretty sweet life for all my complaining. I have a home that keeps my family safe, protected from the elements, allows for personal space and family space, and fits within our budget. I have a husband that is generous, thoughtful, and kind. He is a playful father and compassionate. He is a kind husband that rarely denies me anything. My children are healthy, intelligent, funny, and creative. I have extended family that loves and cares for my family and me. I have a few relatives I know I could call if I ever needed anything. My husband has a job that provides for our family's needs and many of our wants. Although my husband doesn't like his job most days he excels at his work and goes in day after day, year after year and does it to provide for our family. His job has been steady and generally accommodating. I have my own personal laptop, TV, books, yarn, fabric and sewing machines. I have plenty of clothes and personal items to make me feel good and comfortable.

Overall, it's a pretty blessed life. I am thankful.

A point well made. We all have a lot to be thankful for. One of the things for which I have the most gratitude is the support and loyalty of my friends, who help me up when I trip and fall on my face on the path that is my own pretty sweet life.

Thanks for the reminder.

It's always easier to focus on what we don't have, isn't it?

While your life may not be perfect, you do indeed have a lot to be grateful for. They say that practicing gratitude will lead you to bigger and better things.

Your husbands head should be pretty swelled. I'm sure he is grateful to have a great wife who shows gratitude, instead of always just expecting -

Very touching post!
