Share a poem Sunday-“Be Thankful”

Ivelina  —  January 19, 2014

There are so many different challenges, that come with parenting. As a mother of three amazing boys, I can reassure you, that challenge, problems and tasks change all the time. 

This week my eldest son Ari broke his leg while playing in the classroom at school. It is always a shock when someone gets hurt. Now the whole family life is turned towards helping, healing and adapting the rest of the family arrangements. 

To me personally, having a child with a broken leg means simply two things -rechannel as much energy as possible  energy to nurture and actively practice gratitudepractice gratitude

So that’s why today’s poem is called “Be thankful”. Read and share with friends! 

Be Thankful

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 is 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.

Thank you so much for visiting my site. I was born and raised in Bulgaria (a small country in  Eastern Europe). I moved to Northern Ireland when I was 22 years old, full of hope, big dreams and an adventurous spirit. I am the mother of four wonderful boys and although I am very grateful for each lesson I've learned in my life, I wish that some things might have happened sooner, but everything has it’s place and everything that is  worthwhile is not always easy.  I want to connect with you. Get in touch.
