give thanks

Here's another class project from October's stamp camp w Mary. I've no deets except that it's mainly SU product, is a small (approx 3x2") bag made from Choco Chip card stock ... but I DO have this t'riffic poem to share (enjoy!):

Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don't know something,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations,
because they give you opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for each new challenge,
because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes.
They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you're tired and weary,
because it means you've made a difference.

It's easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
are also thankful for the setbacks.
Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
and they can become your blessings.

p.s. I've temporarily pulled my "countdown to Christmas" post after some gentle ribbing from my brother ... and it'll reappear after Thanksgiving!
