Be grateful for what was for it brought you to where you are and taught you what you didn’t know you didn’t know.
Be grateful for what is because it is speaking to you to grow right where you are – for your sake and the sake of others.
Be grateful for tomorrow no matter what happens because it will hold something wonderful even you do not see it.
Be grateful for the opportunities to look beyond yourself for there are unanticipated wonders awaiting you.
Be grateful for the push outside your comfort zone because the push is really a pull to people and experiences you otherwise would never have had.
Be grateful for what seems wrong and bad because it makes you search for what seems right and good.
Be grateful for those who are no longer with us in body because we now have them with us in spirit working with and for us with great power.
Be grateful for those who are journeying along with us in this life experience, though along different path, for they are inspiration to keep doing what we do.
Be grateful for others’ wins because they are all our wins which lift up the collective body we call humankind.
Be grateful for who you are – exactly as you are – because you are the perfect ingredient for which there is no substitute in this delicious, savory pie of life.
