With Thanksgiving knocking on our door, I am inspired to be mindful of being more thankful for the little things around me.
Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.Robert Brault
One of the little things that comes frequently to mind is the sense of financial stability.
This came in the form of having our Military job. When my husband was deployed, we never had to question when we would get paid.
Likewise, when my husband was younger, before he began struggling with PTSD, I never had to question if he would be going to work. He just did.
This financial stability seemed so routined and normal, but now our life has changed so dramatically, life is no longer “normal”.
Our financial stability has improved, even more so since I got a job, but it is still stressful at times, as my husband has many health issues that prevents him from going to work consistently.
Although, financial stability would seem to be normal to most people, our reality is that it really isn’t.
I have learned a pay check is something you should not take for granted.
What is something you are grateful for today?
