Be Thankful

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 a difference.

It is 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 can become your blessings.

Be Thankful

Be thankful for life,
And all that it holds.
The goods and the bads,
Even those colds.

Colds are unwanted,
And even despised.
But having a cold means,
I am quite alive.

The jobs that we work,
Each and every day.
May not be much fun,
But it comes with pay.

There may be a lot,
That we consider bad.
There are two sides to everything,
Find what it is that makes you glad.
