I was upset with Chris for being messy and not cleaning up after himself...but then I remembered that many people will not be able to spend the holidays with their spouses because of military service, or even more permanent situations like loss.
I was frustrated at having to vacuum my house, but then I remember how blessed I am to have a house, a safe roof over my head. So many people do not have a home to go to, with a warm bed and a dishwasher.
I was irritated at the morning sickness that is still persisting...but I am so grateful to be pregnant and have a healthy, growing child in my belly.
I was sad that I would not be spending Thanksgiving with my side of our family...but I am thankful that they are safe and happy and that we'll see them soon.
I was annoyed at having to trek to Klamath Falls for work...but I am grateful that I have some sort of job, with good friends and coworkers.
I have so much to be thankful for. What a great opportunity to remember all of my blessings, especially amid the frustrations of everyday life!
