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