Thankfulness

I have spent the morning thinking about a conversation from yesterday.  How can we continue to have a thankful heart for all that we have?  How can we teach our children to be thankful and grateful?  How can we remind ourselves that the first thing we need to do in the morning is say thanks for the blessings? 

Thankfulness is the difference between selfish living and generous giving. 

Thankfulness is the difference between living as a steward of your gifts and living as if you own your gifts. 

Thankfulness is the difference between being content with what you have and living with the emptiness of constantly wanting more. 

Thankfulness is the difference between thinking you did it all yourself and realizing that your blessings come from above. 

Thankfulness is the difference between being connected with people because you care for them and using people to accomplish what you want.   

Thankfulness is the difference between seeing the world with compassion and seeing the world against you. 

Thankfulness is the difference between being fully alive and being mostly alive. 

Be thankful today.
