I really wanted to complain...

about my baby's teething, snotty, slobbery, fussiness and lack of sleep for the past 2 days. But I won't. I'm grateful to have been BLESSED with a baby at all, when there are so many people who struggle for years to experience it.

I really wanted to complain about my own cold. But I won't.
I'm grateful that it's ONLY a cold and not something much more serious.

I really wanted to complain about the long hours my hubby has been working lately. But I won't. I'm grateful to have a husband that's willing to work hard and provide for his family.


I really wanted to complain about the pile of clean laundry that desperately needs folded, but I haven't had time for. But I won't. I'm grateful that I've been able to spend time with my kids and have a business that keeps me busy.

I really wanted to complain that I don't have any chocolate in the house. But I won't. I'm grateful that I'm so pampered I can generally get chocolate whenever I want, when there are people in other countries who would just love to have a bite of anything to eat.
