HAve you ever thought the grass was greener on the other side>?

I used to think other people might have it better then me, but sometimes after hearing what theyve gone through to get it its not better, so im thankful for what i have, but i have thought a time or to somebody else might have it easier, might not sound right but its a question.

  • Being a military spouse, I always got a bit of a jealous bone to the Officer's wives but even though my husband isn't an Officer, he treats me the way a man should treat his wife and they can keep their bigger pay checks and nicer housing
