Gratitude


I could complain about the heat, but I’m thankful I’m not toiling outside in the sun.

I could complain about my eyesight, but I’m thankful that I can still see to some extent.

I could complain about my weight, but I’m thankful to have enough food to eat.

I could complain about work, but I’m thankful that I have a job & that I have the health & strength to do the job.

I could complain that I can’t afford a holiday, but I’m thankful  that I have a garden to sit in.

Lovely Post. Any little niggles I have I now look on as first world problems. Really there is nothing to complain about in my life, I just need to keep remembering that. xx
