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 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.

Greetings! I am going through all of my comments and found yours on mine! We do have so much in common. We both love the Wizard of Oz. There is no place like home! I use to have your Carol Endres wallpaper border in my kitchen and use to raise sheep. I love the Proverbs scripture! Have a lovely Thanksgiving! Audrey

I noticed the "Be thankful" was by author unknown, but knowing you have used it on our blog and respecting the words and photographs of others, I wondered if you would mind if I included it to my last newsletter of the year from our website, giving your blog the full credit of seeing it there first? They are powerful words and ones that should be remembered and shared. Thank you for posting them.
