Sometimes it's so very hard to watch as others' families grow, their skills excel, their wealth builds, their inner circle enlarge, their homes sparkle. However, I also know that pondering on what lacks in my own life will never help me be thankful for and enjoy what I DO have.
While I may never have kids, or a large circle of friends, or a big house full of nice furniture I'm thankful that I have a wonderful family and an amazing husband I couldn't love any more than I do. I have a small circle of close friends who always make me feel special. I have a roof over my head and a warm bed to sleep in at night. I'm good. Expecting more just seems unfair to all those out there who are struggling but making it with so much less.

I won't say that I'll never dream of having more, but I want to try to remember to take some time to appreciate my own life. It may be a long road for me to get there, but I'll be working on it.
