think about it thursday....GRATITUDE!

i've been thinking a lot lately about
GRATITUDE....
i don't have everything i WANT,
but i do have everything i NEED!
for example...

as my bloggers know,
my car got smashed a while back
and i, of course, would love a new one.
but finances have, at least
temporarily, put that on hold.
but it runs GREAT, it's still totally
driveable, and i'm SURE there
are thousands of people without
transportation that would love to have it!
therefore,
I AM GRATEFUL FOR MY CAR!!!
our faucet is broken and
we need to replace it with a whole new one.
it's kinda a pain to do dishes this way
and keep it sanitary while
getting water out.
but i'm also sure there are
thousands of people who don't have
ANY running water in their homes,
if they even have a home that is,
who would be totally fine with it
JUST THE WAY IT IS!
therefore,
I AM GRATEFUL FOR RUNNING
WATER IN MY HOME FROM MY
BROKEN FAUCET!!!
our toilet needs the mechanism
(look how i used that word to imply
that i know what's wrong with it, LOLOL!)
replaced and our handyman
hasn't gotten to it yet.
but i am SURE, once again,
that there are thousands of people
who don't have a toity in their
homes and live in shacks,
or even on the streets
with little children right now
who would be just FINE with it
just the way it is!!
therefore,
I AM GRATEFUL FOR MY TOITY!

sooooooooo,
the next time you're looking at
something thinking
'i wish i had a NEW ONE,
i wish i had a BETTER ONE'
or something like that,
just remember that there's someone
out there who wishes they had one at ALL!

That's exactly how people should look at their lives. Especially the ones who have more than others that want want want... thanks for the reminder.
