Thank you Thursday

Sometimes, it’s so hard to live in gratitude.

I know someone who got some disappointing news on Tuesday.  Really, really disappointing news.  Something he was excited about, had worked really hard for and was eagerly anticipating…may not happen.  There’s still a chance, but it’s a slim one.

Today, I am thankful that even in discouragement, one can still find reasons for gratitude.

This very same person has good health, a fantastic wife, a beautiful little boy, and a lovely home.  He’s smart, well-educated, thoughtful and funny. 

My hope for him – and for anyone experiencing a bump in life’s road – is that he will find his way through this temporary setback and realize that he is surrounded by many good people, good things, and a ton of love.
