Earlier today I was talking to my dad complaining about the day, people and things in general. He stopped me and to say you can't control other people that there are so many people worse off. He said he had just finished eating and was full while so many others in the world are hungry. I have thought about this all day. We all take so many things for granted! I have a husband who adores me, parents who love and support me and two sisters that are my best friends. I have two beautiful nieces and I am going to be an aunt again in December. I have a roof over my head, a job and car to get there .I am healthy and I have 3 wonderful pets at home that are waiting for me everyday for attention.
It made me think about one of my all time favorite movies... Pollyanna. If you have never seen it you really should. She is always playing "the glad game" no matter what is going on you can always find something to be glad about it. So that is going to be my goal for this week to stop finding the bad and the negative in things and find something to be glad about. I am so blessed I should be thanking God more and whining about things a whole lot less!
Let me know some of the things you are most thankful for!
