I know times are tough for people these days with the cost of food, fuel and other major expenses it hard to keep up and I hear so many of my friends and people I know complaining all the time. People are losing hope these trying times but be thankful. There is ALWAYS someone else doing a lot worse than you are. This is for all the folks that are complaining about their day to day life.
