Tomorrow is Thanksgiving here in the US. It’s a great time to be with friends and family, but it can also be a very difficult time once an affair has devastated your life.
We’ve posted the poem below each of the previous two years and like before, we would appreciate it if you could tell us about the things that you are thankful for.
Even in the depths of despair that you may very well be feeling right now, we believe there can still be reasons to give thanks!
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.
Have a very happy and blessed Thanksgiving! Try not to eat too much tomorrow and enjoy “Black Friday” for those of you crazy enough to fight the crowds.
Don’t forget to comment below on the things you are thankful for.
We are thankful to each and every one of you!
