“The hardest arithmetic to master is that which enables us to count our blessings.”

Some say it is human nature to focus on the negative. Others think when we abandon our negative beliefs and feelings, optimism grows naturally. I believe even when our circumstances are grim, all of us can always find something to be thankful for.
In an interview with the press, Charles Schulz said the reason he drew images of childhood is because all of us can relate to the moments when we were carefree and our biggest problem in life was keeping the kite out of the neighbor’s tree.

I believe nothing invites happiness more than acknowledging the good things in our lives and thanking God for them. I believe there is no better way to stabilizing our inner compass, gaining perspective, regaining happiness and restoring our emotional balance than focusing on the positive aspects of our lives.

Thank Him for the resources He has provided to meet your daily needs. And thank Him for the breath of life …………….. because “To Fly A Kite, You Have To Look Up.” !!!
