The ABC's of Life...T is for Thankful

"It isn't what you have in your pocket that makes you thankful, but what you have in your heart." ~unknown

"Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns; I am thankful that thorns have roses." ~unknown

"There is always, always, always something to be thankful for." ~unknown

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow." ~Melody Beattie

Every day is a thankful for the little things...appreciate life...don't take things for granted...remember to say "thank you"...look for the silver lining. If you have a grateful heart it will fill your life with joy (and who wouldn't want more joy in their life?).


  1. I have that exact Melody Beattie quote in one of my powerpoint presentations! So true - also love the roses and thorns one. Great pics - great reminder - thank you.

  2. Thanks! I LOVE that Melody Beattie quote...I had never heard it before, but it's now one of my favorites :)

  3. Awww, I needed this...especially the chaos into order thing!! I was going through my blogs I follow and thought I'd stop by. It's been awhile!! Have a wonderful day and I will remember to be GRATEFUL!!;)
