I just wanted to remind you, Dear Someone, to be thankful for what you have — you will end up having more. Be thankful for true love and true friends — they are hard to find. Be thankful for your setbacks — you never know what God is saving you from. Be thankful for the struggles you go through — they make you stronger and wiser. Be thankful for those that left you — friends will come and go but life goes on. Be thankful for your job — there are many that would love to be in your position.
Most importantly, be thankful for your life no matter how good or bad you think life is for you right now — someone somewhere is fighting to survive. “No matter what happens, always be thankful, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus” — 1 Thessalonians 5:18 (TLB).
This is my letter for you today — count your blessings, find a thousand reasons to “be thankful” and happy.
