I love snow - always have. When Jeanette and I purchased our house last May, we knew it had a large driveway. But it wasn't so much the size as it was the layout. It is directly along a fence, on the other side of which is our neighbor's drive - meaning we can't shovel off to that side. For another thirty feet, it follows the side of our house, meaning that all the snow in that section needs to be shoveled down the driveway before it can be shoveled off the driveway.
After all these recent snowfalls, you would think we'd be tired of the driveway. But that's not the case. Even though the driveway is 1050 square feet (thank you, Google Earth), we're still glad we have it. You see, when we bought the house we made a simple decision - we would do our best to not complain about anything that others may not have.
Having lived in an apartment for three years, this included: mowing the lawn, maintaining a garden, shoveling a driveway, fixing a garage, etc. When the barrage of snow hit, many people complained. There were plenty Facebook statuses decrying the amount of shoveling that would have to be done. We did post about shoveling, but in a comical, positive tone. You see, I don't feel like anyone that has as much as we do has the right to complain. It just doesn't sit right with me.
So my word of advice is simple: the next time you feel the need to complain about the luxury that you have, remember those that don't have it. It'll make the shoveling or mowing that much more enjoyable, and it'll get your heart in the right place, too.
