Be Thankful

I was tired last night and when I went back today, to look at my blog I was disappointed on my writing abilities. I should have gone back a third time and proof read it last night, but I didn't. So tonight I am thankful that you guys like me even if I am not the world's best writer. I read this poem today and really like the idea of looking at our lives in a different way and realizing what our blessings really are!

I had high hopes in getting out Thanksgiving day cards to many of you but since I was down with the flu for over 2 weeks...that didn't happen. But I do want to personally thank you for being my family and my friends. You mean the world to me and truly make my life better by being in it. So just imagine you read this from a very classy homemade card! :) Good night!

Be thankful that you don't already have
everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be
to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don't know something,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations,
Because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge,
Because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes, They will teach you valuable lessons. Be thankful when you're tired and weary,
Because it means you've made an effort.
It's easy to be thankful for the good things.

A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are also thankful for the setbacks.
Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles, and they will become your blessings.
