I believe that asking for more good to come into our lives, prior to our accepting the good that is already present, tends to limit our thinking and our experiences. The Thankful List was an effort on my part to provide a tool that could be utilized by any individual. Certainly the idea that by changing our thinking about something might very well cause a change in our circumstances is not a new or unique concept. It is, however, a concept that could and should be expanded upon. And as Oliver Wendell Holmes was quoted as saying, A mind once stretched by a new idea never regains its original dimensions. The challenges needing to be dealt with in todays world can be absolutely overwhelming at times. It is my hope that The Thankful List might provide an opportunity to reflect upon more of the good and positive aspects of the individuals life. Our children look to us, with that child-like trust, to provide the guidance and the help in developing the skills to succeed in life. By creating a thankful list and writing down those things for which we are thankful, we tend to stay focused on the more positive aspects of our lives. This in turn encourages and strengthens us as we continue our lifes journey. I am thankful for the child-like trust in all of us. --Babette Jackson Donaldson
