An attitude of gratitude

Standard

When last have you counted your blessings?  I mean really think about all the things in your life for which you can be thankful.

Did you notice the funeral procession on your way to the shops?  It could have been you.
Did you notice the person in the wheelchair, unable to move?  It could have been you.
Did you notice the old lady in hospital – all alone, no visitors?  It could have been you.
Did you notice the lady with no hair after her chemotherapy?  It could have been you.

There are people all around us with burdens much heavier than ours.  Yet we rather complain instead of being thankful for what we have.

Let’s count our blessings today.  Write them down.  One by one.  Thank God for each one of them.  I guarantee that your problems will seem a lot smaller afterwards.
