I am very thankful today for my family and friends.
All of you who stop by and leave me wonderful comments bring such joy to my heart.
And fill my day with hope and happiness.
I am thankful for knowledge.
The ability to relearn things.
The positive attitude I am growing in.
The creative side waking up.
The joy of hope that this world will survive and turn around.
What is happening to the economy is temporary.
I thank God that I have a new outlook on life. I am learning to be an optimist.

How do you find out if you are an optimist or pessimist?
Ask yourself the question: How do I think when bad things happen to me?

A pessimist. lets the bad things take over and rule there life.destroying everything home, work, and even relationships.

" An optimist,separates the 1 bad thing from good things .smile Pictures, Images and Photos
"It's just one thing that's not so good, everything else is fine."

" You may not be able to control what life puts in your path, but you can control who you are and who you will become"

That gives us alot to think about. Thanks for sharing and thanks for your sweet comment on my post. You are right - food is also a need. It never ceases to amaze me just when you think you have it rough - there is always someone else far worse off. I am thankful for Gods blessings and His covering! -Happy TT! -Laurie

a pessimist curls up in a ball and hides (emotionally or literally) when negative things happen-ask me how I know (winkwink)

I think God loves a pessimist, its an oppuritunity to hear Him say "let me help you"

Optimist already know how to do this:)

I so agree with your award below "exceedingly charming" sums it up great:)
