Gratitude - September 9th 2007


Recommended Posts


I'm grateful that

a friend sent me an e-mail

after reading the posts about


Here is a part of that e-mail;

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.

~ Author Unknown ~

Would be thankful if you read it.

Thank you, Jackie. As always, wonderful, thoughtful words.

I'm grateful for my church family, without whom I cannot imagine awaking on a Sunday morning. I'm grateful for their never-ending support, their hugs, their prayers, and their love.

I'm grateful for my beautiful niece Brenna who will be staying here with her family at my home to take care of my Mrs. Dickens while I go to England and Spain next week.

(So Jackie, should I be grateful that I over-filled the pool and don't know how the heck to pump it out? Oh, okay! :wink: I can hear Bill now, "you did that AGAIN?")

Hugs to all,
