troubled times

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.

Oh, Claire, I am sorry.

Here I've been bothered and battered by a lot of catch 22 scenarios in "you can't get there from here -- nor from there" customer service attitudes on all fronts...

So, thank you very much for the reminder. I had completely forgotten that quote!

I'm very sorry too, Claire. It's difficult to accept that people you share so much time with could treat you so badly. I hope things have become a bit more clear since you wrote this.

Claire, I keep checking back; just hope you are doing ok?
