Thanksgiving 2008

Be Thankful
(author unknown)
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 guild 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.

Happy Thanksgiving! Anyone who lives in this country should be grateful for what we have, not always dwell on what we don't have in our lives.

Happiest of Thanksgivings to you! As the day comes to a close on the east coast, I can reflect on a beautiful day spent in the warm embrace of my family. I hope the day was as kind to you and yours and it was to me and mine.

Hi, Karen,
Happy Thanksgiving a day late, but then every day should be a day of Thanksgiving, shouldn't it.

Is your son home for the weekend? If so, enjoy him. I know you will.
