I've been undergoing a bit of a transformation lately, maybe it's the changing season, maybe I'm just finally growing up and calming down a bit. Or maybe someone told me I was being an ass.

And what I found was immense gratitude, because really, compared to many, I've got it pretty darn good, a career I love, a beautiful wife, a roof over my head, lots of food to eat. Heck, I even had air conditioning on those horrible hot days that pissed me off so much
