Thanksgiving Thoughts

We're staying home for Thanksgiving this year and having a small family gathering.  Christmas was always my favorite holiday when I was a child, but as an adult with grown children of my own, Thanksgiving now ranks number one with me.  It seems like the media and most of the stores go from Halloween right into Christmas without stopping to take a breath and appreciate the calmness and meaning of Thanksgiving.  I hope you enjoy these "be thankful" thoughts that I shared last year....I think the words are so true!


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'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 can become your blessings.

Wishing you all a safe, happy, and blessed Thanksgiving celebration.
