Be thankful

Yesterday we received some very sad news. A guy Chris works with was killed in a head on car collision, while on his day off. His wife happens to be our hairdresser. She is 7 months pregnant with their first child. When things like this happen it makes you stop and look at your own life and appreciate what you have..............................

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.

Give your loved ones, an extra special cuddle today and be thankful for what you have. You just don't know when, that can be so quickly taken away.
