“One act of thanksgiving made when things go wrong is worth a thousand when things go well” (author unknown)
I’ll admit, 2012 wasn’t exactly a prosperous year for many people. I will not even pretend that it was. I’ve heard enough ‘doom & gloom’ from the media to last a lifetime.
What I have also heard is a heart-warming collection of stories from people who have been dealt a difficult hand, and are still giving thanks for the air in their lungs, and for those around them who add value to their lives with a smile, a kind word or a helping hand.
These are the people in whom I place my faith for the recovery of our amazing, resilient nation…those who may not have all they once had, but are still thankful for the gifts they still have: family, friends, love, etc.
What are you thankful for at the dawn of this new year?
If you can take a moment to list them in a comment, I would love to hear them. Steve@SteveGamlin.com
Who knows? You may trigger feelings of thanks in people who think that area of their lives is currently a blank slate.
If you can read these words, be thankful you have a computer, and the vision to read the screen. That computer can be used to connect you to a world of people who are also thankful, if you choose to seek them out.
May you all be blessed with the company (or the happy memories) of loving family and friends as 2013 begins. It is my most sincere hope that each new day brings you another reason to be thankful.
Please consider investing in a journal, or perhaps a jar with small slips of paper, to assist as you gather a long list of ‘thankful’ feelings which will carry on and grow exponentially through the rest of your days.
No matter what the news headlines are screaming, you can share the real deal…positively.
I am thankful for you!!!
