Be Thankful

Be thankful for your struggle for

without it you wouldn’t have stumbled

across your strength.

 

Be thankful for the darkness for

without it you wouldn’t have seen

 the stars.

 

Be thankful for the pain for without it

you wouldn’t have experienced

freedom.

 

Be thankful for the rain for without it

you wouldn’t have seen

 the rainbow.

 

 

Be thankful for the storm for without it

you wouldn’t have appreciated

 the sunshine.

 

Be thankful for your failures for without them

you wouldn’t have reached

success.

 

Be thankful for the little things for without them

you wouldn’t have shaped

  the big things.

 

Be thankful for goodbyes for without them

you wouldn’t have created

new beginnings.

  1. When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light,
    For your life, for your strength.
    Give thanks for your food and the joy of living.
    If you see no reason to give thanks,
    The fault lies in yourself.

    -Tecumseh

    Give thanks for peace.
    “Peace that passes all understanding.”

    Paz
