Be Thankful

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American Friends. This poem was in a BPHope email that I received this morning. It is a good reminder to look for the good side of difficult days and not take a step towards the down spiral of despair. I had to share.

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.
