I am very blessed.
Today I took a day off from the world. It did not start as good day...to be truthful yesterday didn't end so well. But this morning when I was printing out some paperwork for a job application, the printer ran out of ink. I didn't have enough oatmeal for cereal...it was what I really wanted for breakfast. It really bugged me...no reason..I just wanted to eat it before I went to the store. I was feeling bad anyway cause I had to listen to a friend talk about the things she bought for herself..like a kindle, some shoes, things that really didn't matter. She and her family were going to a movie tonight. She was so excited, and I am happy for her. But I was feeling bad for me. I don't have a job, I am having a hard time learning new computer programs that are making me feel like I am not employable, I can't have the things I would like or even travel. I guess I was having a pity party..allowed some days I guess.
Then while walking in great weather talking to my friend, I just stopped. I realized that yes I was having a pity party. I am so very blessed. I have so much more than a lot of people. I have a roof over my head, food to eat...that thought alone made me feel so guilty for feeling sorry for myself. A car that I can drive. When I feel lonely, I know I have friends and family I can talk to. Like my friend Lacey that walks with me. She even tells me that if I can walk so far at my age..then she can..lol. my "age"..great..lol. But I do have my health another blessing. I do know some people that are younger than I am that don't do near what I can do.
Yes I am blessed..maybe not in "things", but in every other way.
