Happy Thanksgiving everyone

Happy Thanksgiving to all my readers! I came across this poem about being thankful, and I think it has a very good message. We are often thankful for all the wonderful things in our lives, but this poem suggests other things we should also be thankful for. I hope you like it. Have a wonderful weekend with family and friends and may the bounty of the season fill your hearts and your home. May your Thanksgiving truly be blessed

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.
Its during those times that 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.
It means you've made a difference.
Its 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.


Don't ever save anything for a special occasion. Being alive is the special occasion.
