Things to Be Grateful For

Yes there are those still.

I'm sure there are a lot more- but this is all I can come up with for right now. Being grateful or saying, "well, things could be worse," certainly doesn't make them any "better" per say. It's like when I've battled depression and people (Dan sometimes) try to tell me others have it much worse- there are people starving, dying, in a war, people with nothing- how could that make me feel better when it's so sad. It always made me feel much worse about life in general and the amount of suffering in the world.

So, yeah, thinking of others who don't have all I have during their own state of grief or tragedy, certainly doesn't make this "better." But thinking of the good things I do have- it's still worth noting.
