A Realization

Recently I have noticed that I live in a nice house in the suburbs (in a good school district) with my wife and two children, 1 boy and 1 girl. We have a minivan and a sensible 4 door sedan. I have a job that pays well enough and has good benefits. I am on the board of directors of a local women's shelter. I am a Major in the Army National Guard - and I recently came home from a year long deployment to Afghanistan, plus I was healthy and whole. I am a member of my local American Legion post. Both my parents, and my wife's parents are living and in good health...
If I didn't know any better, I'd think the Almighty has decided, personally, to use me as an example of how good it can get. So, this leaves me with one request..If any of you ever catch me bitching about something petty, please find me and slap me upside the head. I'll understand.

That is all.

UPDATE: Oh, I forgot to mention that my friends tend toward being smart, funny and supportive. Plus, some of them have even decided to blog here with me...

You deserve it, Major. Not the slap upside the head, mind you, but all the good fortune.

The Lord is certainly being good to you, but if you were truly blessed, you be in Wisconsin. Blessed are the cheesemakers, and all that! ;-) Living in Chicago is the Lord's way of allowing you to see the one true state whenever you cast your vision to the north! Not unlike the Children of Israel looking across the Jordon.

Oh, and just let me know where and when you need that slap upside the head. I'm your man. :-)
