Sometimes we need to have larger issues – suffering, poverty, discrimination – to point out to us how thankful we should be when life is comfortable.  Too often we become grumblers over issues that are so small ants could carry them away.  After we pile up our dislikes and interruptions and petty concerns, we begin to think we are hard done by.

And then the big issues strike. 

I want to be like a cancer patient I know who has carefully guarded her own heart to remain thankful in all things.  Good for the soul and the body!!

I want to learn to be thankful in all things.  Good for my soul and my body!!
