I found this at the end of an email and thought I would pass it on:

Every day be thankful for what you have and who you are.

This is a simple request. If you appreciate life, share this with your friends

Even though I clutch my blanket and growl when the alarm rings. Thank you, God, that I can hear. There are many who are deaf.

Even though I keep my eyes closed against the morning light as long as possible. Thank you, God , that I can see. Many are blind.

Even though I huddle in my bed and put off rising. Thank you, God, that I have the strength to rise. There are many who are bedridden.

Even though the first hour of my day is hectic, when socks are lost, toast is burned, tempers are short, and my children are so loud.

Thank you, God, for my family. There are many who are lonely.

Even though our breakfast table never looks like the picture in magazines and the menu is at times unbalanced.

Thank you, God, for the food we have. There are many who are hungry.

Even though the routine of my job often is monotonous. Thank you, God, for the opportunity to work. There are many who have no job.

Even though I grumble and bemoan my fate from day to day and wish my circumstances were not so modest.

Thank you, God, for life.

Pass this on to the friends you know. It might help a bit to make this world a better place to live, right? A friend is someone we turn to when our spirits need a lift. A friend is someone to treasure.

For friendship is a gift. A friend is someone who fills our lives with Beauty, Joy and Grace and makes the world we ! live in a better and happier place.


God bless you and yours.

Home again

Well I made it home from Beijing China, with lots of luggage and a very tired body!  You can read more about it on Beijing Design.
