For the beginning of the Winter Holiday Season – the start of your new year…



Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don’t know something ~
it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations ~
they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge ~
it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes.
They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you’re tired and weary ~
it means you’ve made a difference.

It’s easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are
also thankful for the setbacks.


I’m very thankful for the people I’ve met this year, and for the people I’ve let go of this year –  may your life be richer for both groups, as well.

Bright Blessings ~ Karen
