I quote others to better express myself ~ Susan K

"I could do a five thousand piece puzzle and discover that one piece is missing.  What I think about isn't the five thousand pieces I completed.  I think about the one that is missing.  I can accept that I touch a thousand lives with a story but worry that I might not have touched you."

~ Bob Perks

A day that begins with gratitude is a day that you'll be able to fill with positive progress.
 When you're sincerely appreciative of where you are and what you have,
 you'll greatly expand your own possibilities.
Begin with a thankful thought.
 And connect yourself with the abundance that is all around you.
There is always something for which you can be sincerely thankful.
 And the simple act of being thankful ignites a productive momentum in your world.
By focusing your thoughts on the positive aspects of your life,
 you cause their influence to grow.
Be grateful, and your gratitude happily creates even more
 things in your life for which you can be grateful.

The appreciation for what you have gives more value to all that you are.
 The blessings you enjoy are blessings precisely because you see them as such.
Tap into the great reservoir of real value that is already available to you.
Live with gratitude, and you'll create even more reasons to be thankful.
~Ralph Marston~
