I’ve been feeling kind of whiny the past couple of days, and I’m trying to remind myself that I have a choice to be whiny or thankful. I still feel whiny, but I’m inching toward thankful.
I’m whiny because I’ve had an earache the last couple of days. I’m thankful that I have my hearing, and that I have access to good medical care if needed.
I’m whiny because all the other schools in the county got a two hour delay today for the windchill advisory and my school didn’t. I’m thankful that I have a full time job with benefits.
I’m whiny because it’s cold out and the rabbits’ water keeps freezing and I have to keep thawing and changing it. I’m thankful that I have easy access to clean, potable water in my home.
I’m whiny because it’s ice carving competition season, which means my husband is away a lot. I’m thankful that I have a wonderful husband who loves me and is faithful to me and is earning money.
All in all, I know I’ve got a pretty good life. I just have to remind myself of that every now and then.
