Let's give thanks...

So Thanksgiving has decided to show up a little sooner than anticipated...
the year is just flying by. I really don't think there should just be one day to give
thanks, it should be everyday but whatever. As far as the political aspect of the
holiday goes well we can go on forever with our I am just going to leave it like this:

Be thankful for what you have and whom you have that is good in your life,
for in a spit second it/they can be gone.
Be thankful that you don't already have everything you want.
if you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don't know something,
it gives you the opportunity to learn.
Be thankful for the hard 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 want to give up
it is then you will reap the rewards.

It is so easy to be thankful for the good things,
but remember the beautiful life 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.
