    Read this on Foxnews this morning.

    Be Thankful for Something ...
    No matter what you do for a living, no matter how hard or stressful you believe your job is, remember the hard work you put in to get where you are today, and remember that there are others out there working a heck of a lot harder, for a heck of a lot less.
    Be thankful for your little cubicle. Be thankful for the boss who rides you hard, because what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger. Be thankful for the trash man, the police officer, the snow-plows and the grocery store clerk — because those are tough jobs that somebody has to do. Be thankful if you have one of those jobs, and be thankful if you don't.
    Be thankful for that turkey you'll devour on Thursday, and the football game on the tube.
    I'm even thankful to Citibank for approving my home equity loan. It'll be nice to consolidate those bills.
    Be thankful knowing that you are always trying your best, whether it be at work or at home mowing the lawn or washing the dishes, being a good wife or husband, mother, father, brother, sister, son or daughter. Give thanks to yourself for going that extra mile for the people you love.
    And most of all be thankful for the soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen who put their lives on the line, so we can enjoy everything about the United States of America.
    They won't be home with their families for Thanksgiving. Remember that. And oh, by the way — God bless America.

    The author is bang on. I just went through a spell where I was pissed off at how my life was going- although I'm doing fine financially and have a good job, I figured I could be doing even better. After sitting back and taking a hard look at everything I've accomplished, I've come to the conclusion that 95% of the world would kill for my way of life.

    If you live in North America, have a roof over your head, and have food on the table every night, remember that you are living better than 4 BILLION of the world's population......... /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
