I wish I had...

Too often we tend to compare ourselves with others.  We see another family and secretly wish our kids were as well behaved or wish our house was as nice or our spouse as attentive or ... When you do this, you are not being fair to yourself or your family.  We tend to compare the worst of ourselves with the best we see in others.  We also don't know the reality behind the public face.  Maybe they do have a nicer home but maybe they're drowning in debt.  Maybe the kids just seem well behaved because you don't see them on a regular basis.  Maybe the spouse is gone most of the time.  Lots of things we don't know.  We only know what is going on in our own little world.  And who knows?  Maybe there are people who look at you and are envious of what you have.  You and your family are unique.  Make the most of what you have with what you have and never stop striving to do better but don't worry about what anyone else does.
