It's terrible to me that, one day into the season of thankfulness I find myself griping about all the things I am not happy about, things I want, things I don't like. I have had to step back several times in the past 24 hours and say "wait, life is actually really great right now. Why am I being so negative and grumpy about life?
I need to remember all the things I have been blessed with. I need to remember to thank God for giving me those things. I feel so guilty after catching myself feeling that way because there are so many people who have less, or have had so much taken away and they are more thankful than I am.
So I am spending this holiday season working hard on only being thankful and really trying to not want.
