I am grateful for a lot of things but that's not what I want to talk about.
There are things in my life for which I have not been grateful enough.
I work 8 hours a day, 5 days a week like most people. There are many days that I leave before the sun comes up and get home after it goes down. This all depends on where I happen to be working.
Lately I have been getting aggravated when getting home. The first thing that I usually have to do when getting in is to wash dishes.
Washing dishes is not that big of a deal except that I have to do it every day. Every. Day.
There are many days that I also have to cook - then wash dishes again.
A few days ago I finally realized I should be grateful for this.
- I'm coming home to a woman who loves me no matter my faults nor hers.
- We have dishes.
- We have food.
- We have running water.
- We have a little money.
- I have a job.
Living in the States, I am among the top 10% wealthiest on the planet even though I fall in the lower middle here.
I really have more to be grateful for than I have to complain about.
