Common stressers of daily life...

 I was sitting here thinking about my day in general. I have actually noticed peoples complaints more than I used to, since I have been pregnant this time around. Anyway, as I am sitting here, I am thinking about all the things us women, men, anyone really complain about! Like today for instance, I was complaining about the floors, see being a neat freak, dirty floors stress me out..... BUT then I realized, some people would be damn happy to even have a floor, sticky or not! Same with the laundry, I do several loads a day and am always wondering how in the hell I got cursed with so many dirty clothes, BUT then I realize that some people don't get to wear clean clothes unless they walk to the river and soak them the best they can with no soap and all that mud. But even more disturbing to me was my frustration at cooking each night for my lovely family because 1/2 the time the kids don't eat it, When somewhere a mother is wishing she could cook a meal for her kids, and wishing her kids were so well fed that they would be picky about what she served! All this thinking got me to realize that I am damn lucky, and if I want to complain, I better make it damn good, because so many people would give their left arm to be me, and have my complaints! So, I am going t end this asking you this.....

Have you had that moment where you realize hoe minimal and petty your daily stressers are?

absolutely! My sister post for example. She nagged, complained and acted fake. But she is alive and healthy; she is usually the one person I go to for advice or to vent to. She could be this awful mean person, or not alive at all, so I have a lot to be thankful for. I feel ya on the house. We bought a small single wide trailer...it needs a lot of cosmetic work done, but hey....it's a roof over our heads! I hate my minivan...but hey....we have a vehicle!

Oh yes for sure. We have the luxury of complaining about the neighbor's barking dog or the dirty floor.  My sister is close to death with kidney failure. I really don't have anything valid to complain about.

 Exactly! LOL I am the one with the barking dog ( six puppies also) thank goodness they are all ready to be picked up in 3 days!

Anyway, please know that I am headed to bed soon, nd I will pray for your sister, I will pray that her pain is eased and her fear is eased, and that you and all close to her can be strong together! Even if you do not believe in God, it can't do any harm! Good night sweetie!
