While it's good practice to be thankful for our blessings everyday, too often we become bogged down in the minutiae of what's not to our liking; the snow storm, rainy day for a planned picnic, the boss is unfair, a fender bender, a flat tire on the way to work, your child melts down because the T.V. broke during a favorite program, etc. etc.. Momentarily we lose sight of all that's right in our lives.
    Thanksgiving day gives us the opportunity to focus on what is right in our life.  It's a time to say to ourselves , "what am I thankful for."
    With some serious list making I suspect that the things we're thankful for, by far, exceed the list of things we find peevish.  But day to day we spend too much energy concentrating on the negatives.

    Everyday we choose, when we get up in the morning, what we will let ourselves think about at the moment and each moment of the day.  How much more satisfying our days will be if we choose to put a positive spin on the events we experience, moment to moment.  And when we go to bed at night think; what a great it was.


IT's easier to have a great day when you make someone else's day more pleasant.
