Learning to be more thankful

Do you spend money on luxury items like Smartphones, gaming systems, the Internet, cable or satellite television, and going out to restaurants? When you cannot download the latest application fast enough, or the newest gaming system you want is out of stock, or your Internet provider goes down for a few minutes, or your cable TV (with over 300 channels) does not have "anything" you want to watch, or the restaurant did not get your food out fast enough to you, do you get annoyed or anxious?
