Happy Thanksgiving!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!
there are some things that i have recently started to understand about life... more on others later but for now, what i'm really starting to understand about thanksgiving... like i said, i'm really starting to realize, i guess you could say, "the true meaning"... anyways, i found this and liked it... very true....

Be Thankful
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,for it gives you the opportunity to learn.
Be thankful for the difficult times. During those times you grow.Be thankful for your limitations,because they give you opportunities for improvement.Be thankful for each new challenge,because 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,because 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 whoare also thankful for the setbacks.Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,and they can become your blessings.

What a great list! I think sometimes people forget to be thankful for things that are not material or not family. I am going to try my thankful list tomorrow on my blog with this list in mind.

Happy Thanksgiving!
