Are we really grateful?

I often think to myself…”wow, that person has no gratitude”.  It took me awhile to realize that it’s me that has no gratitude.  I hate it when that happens.  I hate, hate to be a hypocrite and it’s hard to keep our judgemental thoughts in check right?  My daughter woke me in the middle of the night and she was sick.  We took her to the emergency room and I thought while we were waiting (and there was a lot of waiting) “Am I really grateful?  For instance am I grateful for my health and the health of my family??  It’s easy to say “thank you” for a gift, or when someone does something nice for you.  But what about the everyday stuff we don’t even notice…like running water, health, clothes, good food.  The fact that we have medical care so close?  My daughter is all right, and the gratitude angel visited me right there and then.  So my family is healthy, even though we have our aches and pains !  I’m GRATEFUL for that today.
