Be Thankful

I received this poem from a friend in email and thought it was perfect for Thanksgiving and so I am sharing it here with you!


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.

Isn't that a beautiful poem? Such an awesome thought and something that I hope to impart on my children!

So, as you prepare to sit down to your Thanksgiving feasts tomorrow, be thankful!

Have a Blessedly Thankful Day!

That is perfect. That first line is exactly how I feel too. If I had everything I wanted what would there be left to dream about.
Wishing you and yours a very happy Thanksgiving
