How grateful are you?
A friend recently turned 40 and her husband threw her a most excellent birthday party, complete with lots of friends and family, great food, wonderful music, and a slide show that covered all of her 40 years. After the slide show, he asked her if she wanted to say something, and she did.
She started by thanking everyone for coming, and then started to cry very softly. Now what you need to know is that turning 40 for her was more significant than for you and me. Turning 40 for her meant that she has survived breast cancer after taking chemotherapy. Turning 40 for her meant that she’s still here with her husband and children. Turning 40 for her meant a heart overflowing with gratitude to God. And that’s why her soft tears.
Trust me—there wasn’t a dry eye in the room! Gratitude flooded everyone’s spirit.
Everything probably won’t happen just the way you want it to today. But when something does go wrong, remember my dear friend who turned 40…and just be grateful that you’re here. Live positive. Work positive today.
