Be Thankful...

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life! It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our Past, brings peace for Today, and creates a vision for Tomorrow” - Melody Beattie


Today, just take a moment to reflect, pray & meditate. Be truly grateful for life, family, loved ones, health, your job, your car, your home, the  food you eat, the luxury of having coffee to drink, the  clothes you wear, the books you read, etc... Appreciate everything.

Be thankful for the little things in life because in fact,  the little things aren’t little at all. They mean everything. Appreciating the little things makes your life BIGGER. We may not always have what we want, but we always seem to have what we need. We are fortunate and truly blessed. If we look pass the confusion, chaos, trials and tribulations, we will find that beauty, happiness and joy surrounds us everyday.

 To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is generous and noble, but to live gratitude is to touch Heaven.” – Johannes A. Gaertner

 

“Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the successful people with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground. Let their spirit ignite a fire within you to leave this world better than when you found it.” – Wilfred Peterson

    I've seen several other people post it lately. I guess maybe I need the reminder.

    Thank you.
