Family Matters 8-13-19

Someone said, ?A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all other virtues.?There is always SOMETHING to be thankful for. You may be thinking, ?You just don?t know what I have been through. You don?t know what I am going through right now.? I totally get that. Everyone I know is going through situations. Everyone has their own set of problems. What we need to ask ourselves is what are we doing to actually GO THROUGH the situations at hand.

If we don?t want to get stuck and be totally defeated, we must keep a good attitude. We must be grateful for the good things we have in our lives. Replace the regret with gratitude. Replace the hurt and bitterness with gratitude. Replace the negative thoughts with an attitude of gratitude. I heard someone say, ? Be thankful for what you have and you will end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don?t have, you will never have enough.?
