Be thankful...

I received this in an email and thought it was sweet enough to share...

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's easy to be thankful for the good things. A life or 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.

Love! It! I might just email that around. I have some friends going through rough times right now and this is a great message...one often not seen until hindsight--but great none the less!

Looking back, the times I have grown the most as a person were when I came through a hard time. Hard times make us see what is truly important. Not to say I'm not happy about it...but I am grateful for the things I have learned because of those bumps in the road.
