Thankful

A Thankful heart is always close to the riches of the universe

Be thankful Gods answers are wiser than your answers

Leaving yesterdays troubles behind me & being thankful for the gift of today

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the gardeners who make our souls blossom

Be Thankful for the fact that you’re alive and that you have another day to enjoy life to its fullest!

Thanking God for letting me see another day on this beautiful Earth, because another day is not promised

Let us serve the world soulfully. The pay we will receive for our service will be in the currency of gratitude. God’s gratitude.

Being truly thankful makes you infinitely more resourceful. By sincerely appreciating what you have you find new and valuable ways to make use of it

Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.

Being thankful for the little things, gives you grace to overcome the bigger ones

Gratitude, being thankful for the  things we’ve been given, even when its hard

Nothing has turned out as we expected!  It never does. Life’s under no obligation to give us what we expect. We take what we get and are thankful it’s no worse than it is.

Happiness in marriage is not something that just happens.
A good marriage must be created.
In marriage the little things are the big things.
It is never being too old to hold hands.
It is remembering to say “I love you” at least once a day.
It is never going to sleep angry.
It is at no time taking the other for granted;
the courtship should not end
with the honeymoon, it should continue through the years.
It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives.
It is standing together facing the world.
It is forming a circle of love that gathers the whole family.
It is doing things for each other, not in the attitude of duty or sacrifice,
but in the spirit of joy. It is speaking words of appreciation
and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.
It is not looking for perfection in each other.
It is cultivating flexibility, patience,
understanding and a sense of humour.
It is having the capacity to forgive and forget.
It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow old.
It is a common search for the good and the beautiful.
It is establishing a relationship in which the independence is equal,
dependence is mutual and the obligation is reciprocal.
It is not only marrying the right partner, it is being the right partner.
