All our discontents about what we want appear to me to spring from the want of thankfulness for what we have.

Thought to be by Daniel Defoe

Sometimes our blessings seems to pale in light of wanting more and more.  We never seem to be satisfied with what we do have. Instead we want more money, a bigger house, a better job.  True happiness will only come to us when we are thankful for what we do have.  When we stop to look and think about so many people that do not have even the necessary things like a home or food, we should be ashamed for wanting more and bigger things.  I’m not saying don’t strive to better yourself but show gratitude for what you do have.  Think about it.
