There is so much that I'm thankful today, but what I'm most thankful for at the moment is the invention of the telephone. Since B and I are spending Thanksgiving without our families this year, the telephone is our way that we can still spend some of the holiday with them. So, thank you Alexander Graham Bell, for bringing me one step closer those I love!
That being said, the turkey is cooking in the oven and all the sides are ready to go. But in the meantime, I wanted to share with you a poem I found earlier this week here. I think it beautifully sums up this season of thanks and giving.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
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.
