Counting my blessings
It's time I counted my blessings and what I'm thankful for. I get pretty wrapped up in the stupid stuff in life the things that do not deserve as much merit as I have given them. I put to much importance in the mundane things. I've been blessed with a family that loves me very much even when I feel like I don't deserve them. They give me grace and tell me it's OK. We all have each other and that's a rare thing for some. You don't realize what you have until you lose it, not that I am losing it, what I am really saying is I take it for granted most days and that's not something I am proud of. Another thing I am thankful for is our health, I see the struggles of others and I fear some days I've taken my health for granted for way to long instead of taking care of it. I know I can do better. I'm also thankful to still have both my parents, I have so many friends who have already lost theirs and can't imagine how it must feel. I'm also thankful I live in America, we don't stop to realize how good we have it. I'm thankful to have a warm house to come home too every night with cupboards of food to make dinner. I'm thankful to have a job so many have gone with out for a very long time now! I need to put things back in perspective and I'm starting right now!
