Do you have ungrateful people in your life? I know I do. Some of them are more in my life than I desire...but I do try to weed them out as I can.
It does seem that a sense of entitlement goes hand in hand with a lack of gratitude. I believe we American's as a whole believe we deserve the PERFECT life....since we believe we live in the perfect society...or so we are told in every way possible. There has never been the perfect life.....nor will there ever be.
Life is difficult at best and at other times it seems as though events are insurmountable...as the recent Boston Marathon can attest to. Our country is one of the few in the world who don't have to live every day with a constant threat of danger.....I MEAN CONSTANT....examine Israel....for just a small example
So...on this day.....after yet another tragedy.....I vow to up my gratitude quotient....by focusing entirely on what I have instead of what I don't have. Appreciate every day as it comes...no matter...good or bad....I learn from both.
Always saying a silent prayer to God how grateful I am for EVERYTHING!!!
