I know there are worse off people than me.
I forget to be grateful.
I complain about traffic. I complain that I have to let my dog out and I am tired. I complain that I am cold while sitting inside a warm house.
And then I see something like this and I realize this is all so stupid. So then I am grateful for the traffic I drive in because I have a car and a reason to be out and about. I am grateful for my extremely furry dog and his need to play in the rain. I am grateful for a coat and boots and a house.
I am grateful for so much more.
And I am reminded to be present in my gratitude.
