This may or may not cheese some of you off. I hope not.. BUT... Please.. Be happy with what you have.. Even the small things in life that annoy really have no bearing on the continuation of life.. Till a month ago I let the little things bother me. Then along came my son.. Born with a few health issues i wont get into here. WEll after a month of being strong he has had his second blood transfusion.. We are going back to the Childrens hospital on tuesday as a followup. They did tell us to bring a change of clothing for ourselves. Really all else doesn't matter. Heat in the house and my wife and son home and healthy is all that matters at this point.. I have come to a conclusion with a good friend.. So many "problems" that we have in North America are First world Problems. Food, Shelter, healthy family is all that really matters..

I will get off my soap box now.. All i ask is think of all of the good you have in your life.. and truly be thankful for it.

I've heard ...'the one eyed man thanks God only when he sees the blind man.'
Thanks for the reality check.
