Thankful for a little…

with one comment

“Give thanks for a little, and you will find a lot.”
A Hausa proverb from Nigeria

Some of life’s magical moments occur when we are thankful.  I am not speaking of “Oh! Thank you for the flowers.”  I mean the magical moment that happens when the tire on your car blows out while you are driving on the freeway and a good citizen stops to help you change the tire – in the rain.


There is something so special when a customer with three kids and a cart overloaded with groceries lets the customer with one item go ahead of them in the check out line.  It is a small gesture.  It is a little moment of thanks that has a ripple effect of impact.  Giving thanks for a little makes the day a little brighter.

  1. Wonderful, thoughtful post! I even give thanks during the trials I face because I know they come to make me stronger and wiser. I thank God for the opportunity to learn and lesson and grow.
