I came across this list and it reminded me of the power of gratitude and the importance of having the right perspective:
Early Wake-ups=Children to love
House to Clean=Safe place to live
Laundry=Clothes to wear
Dishes to wash=Food to eat
Crumbs under the table=Family meals
Grocery Shopping=$ to provide for us
Toilets to clean=Indoor plumbing
Lots of noise=People in my life
Endless questions about homework=Kid's brains growing
Sore and tired in bed=I'm still alive!
What are you thankful for today?
