It's not Thanksgiving and nothing has happened but...

I was sitting on the couch watching TV with Trey a few minutes ago and I looked over at him asleep on the couch and Harley asleep on the floor and I thought to myself "I am so lucky."

I need to remember this whenever I get sad about what I don't have (ie-children).

I have a job (two actually). I am married to a man who loves me and who always knows how to get me out of a bad mood. I have a sweet little puppy who is always happy to see me when I get home.

We have a place to live, nice things, and a (small) disposable income.

Sometimes it's hard to see how great things are when you're focused on what you don't have.

It's something I'll have to work on.


  1. So true, Lara. I think it can be so easy for all of us to focus on what we don't have instead of being aware of--and grateful for--all the wonderful things we do have. I think it is a very human struggle...and whenever we get that thing we're focused on, some other desire will take its place. Glad you had one of those gratitude-moments tonight--those are very precious.
