Santa came, and went. My kids are merry, and I am, too. As I reflect on the 2012 Holiday season, I have a lot to be thankful for this year. I am blessed. As I continue to take a blogging break until the new year, I wanted to share with you a post I wrote before the Thanksgiving holiday. TV shows do repeats. Why can't I? I also think the message is important.
This particular column was a result from a remark my husband made to me. He said, "You love to complain!" I decided to have a change in attitude, and as a result, this list of reasons why I'm grateful,was created. At that very minute, I realized.....
ays interrupted by a child, as well as every bathroom break I take. Yes, it’s true. But I have electricity, hot water, and a warm home, so I can take those interrupted showers. Unfortunately, too many people cannot say the same.
I’m grateful that I can’t hear the “Bill and Linda show” in the morning because of all the noise in my car on the way to school. I never get to hear one word they say as much as I want to hear, but I’m still grateful because this means my kids are healthy. We also have a car to drive and money to put gas in our car. Unfortunately, some people aren’t as fortunate.
