Serenity Sunday

Be Thankful For
by Author Unknown

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.

My List:

1.) My kids

2.) Great friends

3.) Struggles and breakthroughs

4.) Laughter

5.) The sweet smell of roses

6.) Opportunities

7.) Possibilities

8.) Honesty

9.) Tarot

10.) Green grass under my bare feet

So true, Liz, a wonderful post!...I am a cancer survivor since 2003 and it taught me to be thankful of the smallest things I used to take for granted and I have come to appreciate the insight and lifestyle changes having cancer has given me as well (I resented them at first=I was 37 and limitations pissed me off, but I've seen it expand my growth as a giving, understanding and thankful adult!)...There is good even in bad if we are wise and open enough to embrace it...Life is what you make it and we should choose happiness, kindness, gratfulness and LOVE everyday!...Have a great week, sweet friend.

Always love this Sunday post.

It's never a bad time to be thankful, too. I try to remember to spend some time every day remembering what I'm grateful for.
