Lately, my thankfulness has been relative. I’ve thankful because Q has a job, Gooner isn’t sick, Q’s not sick, our car works… but the truth is I haven’t been flat out thankful. I’ve discovered that my thankfulness is relative because as soon as something bad happens I’m angry, annoyed, and UNthankful. In fact, I become very angry. I don’t know why I think that life should just be great and awesome ALL THE TIME, but I do. I don’t REALLY feel that way, but if something doesn’t go as planned I start acting ridiculous. This is me feeling thankful with my friends on Thanksgiving Day:
And then BOOM, bad news. And the bad news hit me HARD. Why? Because my thankfulness for God’s blessings in my life were relative to what was happening in my life. I’m only thankful if it’s BETTER than what I’m comparing my circumstances with. I just need to be thankful for all the WONDERFUL gifts in my life.
Oh, and Gooner totally stole my scarf. She thinks it is hers…I guess it is…now.
