be Thankful

thankyou very much to Reba for her generous Star Award. she also has a link to Purple Paws.

and I recieve this in an e-mail and would like to share it

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.

Nice thoughts.

I might add to be thankful for simple pleasures - light dancing on water, the warmth of the sun as it strikes your face, a loving hug, a shooting stars a glass of wine, a piece of chocolate, a fresh salad, a child's hand in yours, a dog that wags ans smiles when you arrive...

But that's another poem altogether
