I was sitting here today thinking about how good we have it. “We” being Americans. I think that most Americans really don’t realize how lucky we are. There are so many others out there who are living in true poverty and we sit around stressing because we have to entertain the idea of applying for food stamps. Well, I for one am finding myself thankful for the option right about now.
I’m thankful for the priviledge, because it is definitely a priviledge, of being a stay at home mom. For being able to create an environment of peace and comfort for my family.
I’m thankful for my girls. They are good girls. They bring Brian and I so much joy and laughter and happiness.
I’m thankful for our small town school. Thankful for the fact that Katie has a teacher who genuinely cares for her and takes an interest in her. And thankful for the other adults, parents, grandparents etc. in that school who volunteer their time and also take an interest in my child and the rest of the children.
I’m thankful that even though we may be “struggling” right now, that we don’t know what it means to truly struggle as so many in other countries do. Thankful that I’m surrounded by such caring people who are praying for us and offering help to us.
I think that in today’s world, we all really need to take a look at our lives and realize how much we have to be thankful for.
I’m not trying to sound like a Hallmark card or anything here, I know I usually keep things light and funny on here (and I fully plan on returning to that soon), but I just want everyone reading to know how much I appreciate all that you’ve done for us and how thankful I am to have you in my life.
