Why Not Give Thanks For The Wonderful Things In Our Life ?

Updated on February 16, 2012

With So Many Choices

Every day I see new things I didn't know before

I give thanks

When I am having a tough time

I give thanks for all the good times I have had up to now

Ever have one of those days that everything goes so well

I stop and give thanks and wish many more days like these

When an unforeseen problem bothers you

I give thanks not for the problem but for the solution which I know is on the way

When my body aches from a cold or flu

I give thanks for all my years of good health and a speedy recovery too

Many animals that live and share our world

I give thanks that they are here to help me,guide me and make life more wonderful

We live at a time when everyone is so so busy

I give thanks for all the activities and all the choices that I make

The world of people I have met and those I will soon meet

I give thanks for all the beatiful talented people I see all around me

Natures beauty that shines through the ugliest of days

I give thanks that life will prevail in every type of weather including hail

I give thanks before I need to give thanks

Because life is knowing what you want long before it is yours

      I am suffering with ´flu ´ at the moment. and giving thanks for it hasn´t exactly occurred to me...... at least not until I read your wonderful hub.

      How many days, in comparison have I NOT been suffering with ´flu´or any other ailment.???

      Great point. I always learn from you. Thank you.

      Eiddwen It is never too late to start.It is so easy complaining about all the problems in the world without taking the time to think of a solution.When we find ourselves challanged in some way it is just another good thing hidden under a funny kind of wrapping paper.Once we are through the paper the good things will shine again.I often look at all my struggles in life compared to the limitless opportunities and enjoyment I have had.The scale is tipped to far over to ever see the world as more negative or more bad again.Thanx for being a great part of the good in the world.
