A Time to Give Thanks...

Thanksgiving is probably my favorite holiday, this year in particular, I really feel like I have a new meaning for thankfulness, a better understanding of it.  It has been a year of growth for me on so many levels and learning to be grateful for even the smallest things is one thing I conquered this year, but more so, learning to be grateful for the things that are not so great.  The things that come disguised as "bad" things or obstacles.  I can honestly say that I am truly learning how to be thankful for even those things.  So today, on this day of Thanksgiving, I am so grateful for  a multitude of wonderful things including my family, my amazing kids, my health and theirs, my home, the hundreds of fabulous people I have met through this little crazy idea I had called Pix-Ology, but I am also thankful for all the little hurdles, because through them, and through the hours of racking my brain trying to solve them, or the sleepless nights, I gain insight, I become more creative, I learn, I grow, and I am challenged.  For all this...I am thankful.

I leave you with this poem, and a wish for a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!  Thank you all for your continued support and friendship.

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 is easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are
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.
