Being told to be Grateful…yesterday

Just yesterday, i was told to be grateful for what i have. A strange man told me that there are a thousand people who would trade places with me in a heartbeat. My eyes widened a little…me? Someone would want to be me? No, that’s not what he meant. He meant that i have a body that works and a brain that is not impeded by disease. He meant that i am strong. He meant that i have what some other people would want and that is a healthy working body.

What does it mean to be grateful yesterday and not so grateful today?
