A thankful spirit ~


I have to admit it, I'm not always the cheerful, sweet person that you might think I am. I can be grumpy, down-in-the-dumps or even just downright sad. I try to blame it on hormones because frankly, I do believe that they rule your life but anyway . . . when these feelings creep up on me, I have to talk myself out of them. What in the world do I have to be sad about? That's when I have to respond with a thankful spirit.


A thankful spirit is truly what lifts me up. To stop and think of all the many blessings in my life makes me realize, "Wow, this is a wonderful time in my life and I am truly thankful for each and everything blessing . . ."


Just a small thought for you today to be thankful for all things, that they will work together for good. Maybe by building character qualities in you or even to take you to a different, better place.


Remember ~ These are the good ole' days!


Wishing you all a wonderful weekend! xxoo, Dawn

Thanks for the encouraging word!I"ve been telling my college age kids this all week particularly my son. They're struggling with some tough things in school. It's very important to have an attitude of gratitude

Oh thank goodness for your honesty! I will never question my many blessings but I have a few...OK, OK more than a few, moments when I don't seem all that appreciative for my blessings. At this stage in my life I blame it on hormone changes. Let's be honest our blessings give us many sleepless nights too. We worry about all those blessings and all the day to day responsiblilities. After all that said...life is beautiful my friend. And you made me smile again!
Peace,
Kathy

How timely. I've been so busy with work and now school and trying to keep up with what I want to do. I've been feeling a "little" grumpy. What a sweet way to remind me about being thankful!
