On the topic of grumbling, I was reminded of an excerpt by Kay Arthur about meekness - which is the opposite of a complaining attitude. She writes...

Meekness is an attitude of submission and trust that accepts all of God’s ways with us as good, and therefore it does not murmur, dispute, or retaliate. It realizes that what comes to us from man is permitted and used by God for our discipline and thus for purifying us. Meekness is a trusting attitude that looks beyond circumstances and beyond man to the sovereign God and, bowing the knee, says, “Lord, what pleases Thee pleases me.”
