I know I've been lax on the old blog lately. Guess I've been busy at work and with my NaNo Project. Just thought I'd drop by and wish all my readers a very happy holiday and to remind everyone that it's just important to be thankful for what you DON'T have.
Borrowing from an email sent to me by friends Debi and Skip, permit me to plagiarize!
Be thankful that you don't 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.
However fulfillment also comes to those who
are thankful for some of the setbacks in life.
May the good things in life be yours in abundance, not only on Thanksgiving but through
the coming year.
