Attitude of Gratitude

By uthus2000 | uthus2000 | 16 Nov 2019

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.
