Be Thankful

BE THANKFUL

 

If you have a bad day at work, be thankful. Appreciate that you

have a job. Some people don't.

 

When you pay your bills, be thankful. You can pay them.

 

If you see a gray hair, be thankful. Think of the cancer patient

in chemotherapy who only wishes for any hair.

 

When you find yourself waiting in line or the recipient of

poor service, be thankful. Think about the people who have

no food to eat at all.

 

When you realize how much work it is to take care of a house,

be thankful you have a house. Think about those who only wish

they had a house to take care of.

 

When you feel like complaining because you have to walk

a long distance from your car, be thankful. Think of what

it would be like not to be able to walk!

 

If you get irritated by other people's anger, apathy, ignorance,

bitterness, or insecurities, be thankful. Things could be worse.

You could be one of them!

 

When you think everything in your world is terrible, and you

want to give up, think of the people who have been told they only

have a certain amount of time to live. They don't want to give up.

 

Live life to its fullest. Appreciate life.
