BE THANKFUL (a poem)

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… it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times… during those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations… they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge… which 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 given your all.

It’s easy to be thankful for the ‘good’ things… yet, a life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are 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.


  • When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
  • Change negative things to positive things by looking at them differently.
  • Live with an attitude of Gratitude.
