This week’s FMF writing prompt is: EASY




Setting my timer for five minutes, and . . . GO. 


I have had several weak excuses to complain in recent weeks, and I’m embarrassed to admit that I’ve taken advantage of nearly every opportunity.

My doctor put me on a strict diet to get rid of a very itchy rash, and for the past 16 days, I’ve pretty much only eaten certain vegetables, eggs, and almonds. Then on Wednesday this week, I broke a tooth and now I can only eat certain vegetables and eggs. My husband has been sick with a bad cold off and on for the past few weeks, and as a result, neither of us have been sleeping well and caring for him has cut into my regular work schedule.

I get so easily disgruntled by these minor inconveniences, then I lift my head and realize the truth:

My life is so easy.

I have access to doctors and dentists. I have a car and the ability to drive myself to the doctor, dentist, grocery store, and anywhere else I want or need to go. I have money to buy the certain vegetables and eggs. When I go to the store to look for the vegetables and eggs, I find ample supply on the shelves. I do not live in fear of violence in my home or city. My husband only has a cold and not a more serious disease. My rash is improving, and it has not hindered my ability to work or function.

I have so much to be grateful for. Lord, forgive my ingratitude and my complaining spirit.
