Thankful Thursday is at Laurie's today Her blog is called Women taking a stands .
She chose the theme of Hope for this week.

The word hope is one no one can live with out.
If we do not keep hope alive we have nothing to live for.
I for 1 saw what it was like to have a life with out hope.
When I was going through my years of depression.
I got to the point of no hope.
I can look back now and see it was a choice, I made to restore it.
You need hope to survive.
You have to hope tomorrow will be better.
You have to hope the economy will change.
But better yet when you put in your mind and say with confidence Life is good.
And make your self believe, what ever is happing now is temporary.
It will go away. Your life will be easer.
I am thankful to my friend Cinda's mom for planting the seed of laughter in my life.
Because with that blessing you can face any thing and laugh it away.
When you can smile at adversity.
You have won the battle of depression.
When you don't take thing personally you have won.
When you share good thoughts with others you have won.
When you believe any thing is possible.
You have hope !

I am so thankful I can share my life with others.
I am thankful for my family and friends.
I am thankful you came by today and brightened my day!

Love your thankful list today!
This video is so cool!
We had a speaker in church say that when you recognize Satan's voice in your head, you begin to have power over him, and are on your way to freedom.
Have a great day!

I totally agree with you when you said if you can smile at adversity, you have won the battle of depression.

God bless you!
