I may not live in a big beautiful house or drive the latest model car, but I have family that loves me and I have a friend that I know I can count on in times of trouble, I can truly say I am at a place in my life that I no longer yearn for the things that my neighbor has, as long as I have a roof over my head and my tummy is full my focus is on what I can do for my family and friends to make their lives better. I am Thankful for the life I have been given. Each day I strive to improve myself. No one is perfect, no one can claim they to know everything; As long as I strive to learn something new each day my journey of life is full and happy.
This world is so full of turmoil, everywhere you look someone is in need; not enough love, not enough money, not enough food. No ones life is perfect, no one has every thing they need in this life. If you are grateful for the things you do have you will always receive more. If you don’t show gratitude for what you have, having more won’t improve your situation in life. We are living in a time when so many people are under the impression they’re entitled to every thing. In life if we only look for our own comforts, and not share with others we live a lonely existence .
You never hear from people who give food to the hungry that they had to go without food or if someone rises to the occasion to help someone in need it always comes back to them.
I choose being thankful for the life I have been given; having an attitude of gratitude, freely giving unto others I know giving makes your richer and more blessed than receiving.
