If God brought you to it,
He will get you through it.

Give Thanks In Everything

Instead of worrying about the things I don't have,
I will look at what I do have
and realize that I am blessed.
Throughout the course of every day,
I will search for things to give thanks for.
A smile from a stranger, a compliment from a friend,
a blue sky, a green light...
These are all reasons to give thanks.
When night comes, I will write down
five things I am grateful for.
The next night, I will write down five more.
The more I search for blessings,
the more I will find.
Keeping my eyes open
will keep my heart full.

Appreciate the little things;
stop to enjoy a sunset or the smell of a flower.
Look for the happiness and the good in life,
and your life will be happy and good too.

~Barbara Cage~

Be full of awareness
of the beauty around you.
Be full of gratitude
for friends and family,
for the goodness you find in others,
for your health and all you're capable of.

~Barbara Cage~

Look around you
and be thankful.
Count your blessings.
Instead of rushing
here and there,
take the time to
appreciate your surroundings.

~Beth Fagan Quinn~


You know that it's easy to invest in the best riches of all,
and that precious moments are most likely
to come to those who search them out.
You know that cherished times are to be found
in heart-to-heart conversations,
and that you can have a wealth of beautiful tomorrows...
just by moving ahead of any worries,
moving beyond any sorrow, and
using the present to shape the future.


Whether you're sixteen or sixty, I encourage you to find the magic in this day. Go out of your way to appreciate the deserving things here before you : people who matter, places that will inevitably change, and circumstances that get rearranged all too easily.

Do more than stop and smell the flowers... Search them out. Plant new ones in the places you pass by! Send bouquets of flowers to the people y9ou care about. Remember that there's more to appreciate in this moment than we realize...

Years from now, the truth of this will shine. And one of your sincere regrets will be not knowing how good you had it... at that time. ~Douglas Pagels~

a pocketful of sunshine to everyone!!!

Blessings to all,

KIMMY that is so true. it never fails to cheer me up.

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.

"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino

If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
