Be thankful for difficult times-it's during such times when you grow
Be thankful for limitations-this give you an opportunity to improve
Be thankfl for new challenges-builds character and gives strength
Be thankful for mistakes-it teaches you valuable lessons (many lessons learned on the way to the blessings)
Be thankful for good things-a life of rich full fillment comes to those of us who are thankful for the set-backs.
