-I could complain about it being so stinkin' cold, BUT, at least I have sweatshirts to pile on and extra blankets to curl up in.
-I could complain about cold showers, BUT, at least I can take a shower and usually have a dry towel to dry off with.
-I could complain about the long periods of time that we're always in the car, BUT, I'm fortunate to be able to sit in a car and not have to walk for miles on end to get somewhere.
-I could complain about how expensive so many things are, BUT, then I realize that I don't really NEED anything else. I have everything I need, plus quite a bit, and I do have a little (not much!) extra money on hand to buy something if I feel it is absolutely necessary.
-I could complain about how hard math or science is, BUT, at least I have the privilege of doing school and being able to move ahead in life.
-I could complain about not seeing enough miracles in daily life, BUT, then I look around. I can look at the baby I am snuggling with and see the tiny miracle of life. I can pick on my sisters and realize the miracle and blessing of family. I can go to an orphanage and realize the miracle of second chances at life. All of a sudden, there are so many more miracles around me that I had at first thought of!
