We’ve had bad news all year. Our trip to Thailand opened my eyes. I saw people earning minimum wage and yet they are still smiling.

Success is not money but knowing what you have is enough.

Yes we are still lucky in all aspects.

1/ I can flush toilet paper down the toilet.

2/ My kids are smart arses and can be a pain sometimes but at least they are not druggies

3/ We have heating and AC

4/ The business is doing okie. It generates enough to put food on the table, cover our living expenses and a holiday overseas every 2-3 years.

5/ We are all alive and kicking. No health issues.

I can go on and on.

Despite everything I’m thankful for all that we have.
