Okay, so our cabinets are falling apart – and our kitchen is barely functional.
But at least you can’t tell from the outside?
And yes. The master bathroom shower is leaking through the ceiling into the bathroom below…AGAIN.
But we have a second bathroom, and its terrible water pressure in the shower is just enough to encourage this pregnant lady to get off her feet and relax with a book in the bath more often than she has been lately. Not to mention that we have clean, hot, running, water in the first place.
Sure, our budget may be stretched tighter than we’d ideally like, with a baby coming – but we have a house, and a car, and our son will have everything he needs by the time he arrives in this world and into our arms. Not to mention that we’ve paid off a credit card and 5 bills in the last 4 months (which is good, because we’ll need that money to fix the freaking bathroom…).
The truth is, although I may get stressed sometimes (a lot), we are ridiculously lucky and blessed with what we have in our lives right now. Yes, we’ve paid our dues in life to get here…but we got here, and we have more than most. Anything we don’t have, we have the opportunity of obtaining. Through hard work, true – no one is going to hand us anything for free. But still. Even the opportunity to better your situation is more good grace than many people are afforded.
Which is why for today’s Thankful Thursday, I’m Thankful for This Bountiful Life I’ve been given. For the overflow of opportunities, hard work, and sheer grace and luck, that has brought me to where I am today. From the family, country, state, and city I was born into; to the crazy amazing people I have met along the way; to the family I am making for myself.
Because even on our worst days, the life we lead is better than some people could ever dream of. And on the best days, it’s better than anything I could ask for. And for that I am Thankful!
