Count Your Blessings

When you’re ready to pull your hair out because your child is ‘testing his boundaries,’ count your blessings.
Your child is healthy.

When you’re screaming silently at the traffic that’s going to make you late for an appointment, count your blessings.
You have a running vehicle.

When you’re so angry at your boss you’re on the verge of tears, count your blessings.
You have a job.

When you’re at your wits end because your mom STILL treats you like a child, count your blessings.
Your mom is still here.

When you’re frustrated because they raised your property taxes again, count your blessings. 
You have a home.

When the prices of fresh produce or seafood is cost prohibitive, count your blessings.
You have enough to eat.

No matter what your circumstances are, you can wallow in them and be miserable, you can fight against them and be frustrated, or you can thank God for what you DO have and live the life Jesus died for you to have.
