During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations
because they give you opportunities for

Be thankful for each new challenge,
because it will build your strength and

Be thankful for your mistakes.
They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you're tired and weary
because it means you've made an effort.

It's easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
are also thankful for the setbacks.

Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.

Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
and they will become your blessings.

Bucky that is all so true.

I am thankful to be here and tell you I am.
I am thankful that of all the things I could have had that my God thought sjogren's, and lupus were just the right ones for me to handle, and be a blessing to others who struggle.
I am so very thankful that I got to work with such special kids at school before my journey on with autoimmunity.
I am so thankful that though I can look into the mirror and see how I now look with all this, that it is a gift compared to the hollywood beauty scene with all their problems.
I am so thankful that these diseases help me to slow down, and realize the things that are really important.
Thank you God for always providing what I need, not what all I may have wanted or thought I wanted.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
