Its hard to be grateful when you think the world is conspiring against you. 2020 has been shit for lots I am sure.
But I have things to be grateful for. I am still employed and with work coming back gradually, I am back at work with no cuts to my salary in October.
I have a roof over my head, I have savings which I managed to add to, even with pay cuts and tightening of the belt.
Yes I have had a shit September with having my 4 wisdom teeth out and complications with one side and managed to get the dreaded dry socket and gum infection which I still have and am on the same steroids as Trump is on, Dexamethasone, which does make one a bit crazy..
But I also had insurance to cover 80% of the dental costs so that's a silver lining.
She has spent the better half of her years caring for everyone else yet she is bubbly, caring, sweet, still has her faith in God and ready to face the world and her lot. She is such an inspiration to me. Telling her about my shit marriage was peanuts compared to what she has been through. We all have options, she could have walked away from her husband years ago but she knew her sons needed him around. She chose to stay and take on the caregiving again.
So I will try to stop moaning about my life because I have got it good, I will be grateful for small and big. Because looking at my life, I am grateful.
