To be Thankful

The mess to clean after a party because it means I have been surrounded by

The taxes I pay because it means that I'm employed.

The clothes that fit a little too snug because it means I have enough to

My shadow who watches me work because it means I am out in the sunshine.

A lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning and gutters that need
fixing because it means I have a home.

All the complaining I hear about our government because it means we have
freedom of speech.

The space I find at the far end of the parking lot because it means I am
capable of walking.

My huge heating bill because it means I am warm.

The piles of laundry and ironing because it means I have clothes to wear.

Weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day because it means I have
been productive.

The alarm that goes off in the early morning hours because it means that I'm

Getting too much email bogs me down but at least I know I have friends who
are thinking of me.

Even though I clutch my blanket and growl when The alarm rings, thank you,

God, that I can hear. There are many who are deaf.

Even though I keep my eyes closed against the morning light as long as
possible, thank you, God, that I can see. Many are blind.

Even though I huddle in my bed and put off rising, thank you God, that I
have the strength to rise. There are many who are bedridden.

Even though the first hour of my day is hectic, when socks are lost, toast
is burned and tempers are short, thank you, God, for My family. There are
many who are lonely.

Even though our breakfast table never looks like the pictures in magazines
and the menu is at times unbalanced, thank you, God, for the food we have.
There are many who are hungry;

Even though the routine of my job often is hard, thank you, God, for the
opportunity to work. There are many who have no job.

Even though I grumble and bemoan my fate from day to day and wish my
circumstances were not so modest, thank you, God, for life.

A friend is someone we turn to when our spirits need a lift.
A friend is someone we treasure for our friendship is a gift.

A friend is someone who fills our lives with Beauty, Joy, and Grace

and makes the world we live in A Better and Happier Place.

What do You have to Offer

You can have anything you desire when you have something to offer in return.

The path to lasting success is traveled by continuously creating something new
and valuable to offer.

If your focus is on getting, and taking, and acquiring, you will meet up with much resistance.

Such an approach will make it nearly impossible to accomplish the goals you've set for yourself.

Focus instead on finding ways to give, to create value, and to make that real and meaningful value available to others.

When you seek to give of yourself, the possibilities for doing so will have no limit.

Many people are, by nature, quite thoroughly self-centered.
Do you realize what an incredible opportunity that represents?

By giving people what they want, you can readily achieve whatever you want.
Work to advance the interests of others, and your own interests are
even more profoundly advanced.

Look at the world around you and ask yourself what you're able to offer
that can bring value to the moment and to the situation.
Answer that question and you've figured out how to move quickly ahead.
