We often regret and crib about things we don’t have — “I don’t have a car” or “I don’t have an LCD television”. We get so lost in our ordinary complaints that we forget to think about those who are deprived of the basic amenities like food, water or shelter; or even worse — of eyesight, hands or feet. We never realize that there are so many beautiful gifts that God has given us. We never realize that we are actually fortunate and blessed.
So how about doing things a little different today? Think about all the things you have; all those things in your life that you should be grateful for, thankful for. It is the attitude of gratitude that will give you true joy.
