    • REASONS TO BE © Richard Butler 2010 http://www.FocusAndMotivation.com
    • There are many little blessings that make life worthwhile. Appreciating the little things will help you develop a grateful heart and increase the joy of your blessings tremendously. Need something to be grateful for today? Consider these... 2 © Richard Butler 2010 http://www.FocusAndMotivation.com
    • 1. LIFE ITSELF. If you‟re reading this, then you woke up this morning, you‟re breathing, and you‟re alive. It‟s a blessing that mustn‟t be taken for granted! 3 © Richard Butler 2010 http://www.FocusAndMotivation.com
    • 2. HEALTH. Why should you wait until something happens to begin appreciating the precious gift of good health? This is truly a blessing to give thanks for. 4 © Richard Butler 2010 http://www.FocusAndMotivation.com
    • 3. FAMILY. Your children, spouse, grandchildren, parents, siblings, and relatives are gifts to be honored and treasured. 5 © Richard Butler 2010 http://www.FocusAndMotivation.com
    • 4. YOUR SENSES. Can you imagine a life without the wonders of hearing, touch, sight, taste, and smell? Even losing one of these senses is a heartache. Combined, they fill our lives with... life! 6 © Richard Butler 2010 http://www.FocusAndMotivation.com
    • 5. WORK. While we sometimes fuss and wish we didn‟t have to go to work, the blessing of a job to provide for our family is something to be grateful for, especially in these uncertain times. 7 © Richard Butler 2010 http://www.FocusAndMotivation.com
    • 6. SUNSHINE. Think of the joy of walking outside and letting the sun kiss your face... can you feel its warmth? 8 © Richard Butler 2010 http://www.FocusAndMotivation.com
    • 7. RAIN. Although it seldom comes at what we consider the “right” time, rain is so necessary to our very survival. Thank goodness we have it – and thank goodness we don‟t have it every day! 9 © Richard Butler 2010 http://www.FocusAndMotivation.com
    • 8. FOOD. So many in the world don‟t have enough to eat. What a blessing it is have food on the table each day! 10 © Richard Butler 2010 http://www.FocusAndMotivation.com
    • 9. LOVING RELATIONSHIPS. The old song says, “Love makes the world go „round.” How true it is! Be thankful for the life-giving love in your life. 11 © Richard Butler 2010 http://www.FocusAndMotivation.com
    • 10. FRIENDS. Friends are the family we choose to love. And how wonderful they are! 12 © Richard Butler 2010 http://www.FocusAndMotivation.com
    • 11. HUGS. A loving touch can remove sadness, uplift a spirit and heal a heartache. This is a treasure to be truly enjoyed. 13 © Richard Butler 2010 http://www.FocusAndMotivation.com
    • 12. FREEDOM. The freedom to live and breathe and think your own thoughts is one of the greatest joys in the world. 14 © Richard Butler 2010 http://www.FocusAndMotivation.com
    • 13. HOME. It doesn‟t have to be large or even impressive, but a home filled with love and laughter is a comfort for the soul. Give thanks for yours! 15 © Richard Butler 2010 http://www.FocusAndMotivation.com
    • 14. EDUCATION. Many people under-estimate the value of education, but those who‟ve acquired it know what a blessing it is. 16 © Richard Butler 2010 http://www.FocusAndMotivation.com
    • 15. KINDNESS. Only when faced with the opposite can we truly appreciate the kindness we‟re shown by others. 17 © Richard Butler 2010 http://www.FocusAndMotivation.com
    • 16. THE FUTURE. Hope for the future is what gives us strength for the day. Be thankful for what the future may hold. 18 © Richard Butler 2010 http://www.FocusAndMotivation.com
    • 17. MEMORIES. While we certainly don‟t want to dwell in the past, an occasional visit down Memory Lane can be a good thing. 19 © Richard Butler 2010 http://www.FocusAndMotivation.com
    • 18. LAUGHTER. There seldom seems to be enough laughter in our lives, so enjoy it where you find it and give thanks that it touched your life. 20 © Richard Butler 2010 http://www.FocusAndMotivation.com
    • 19. PETS. The unconditional love of a pet is truly a gift to be celebrated. Give thanks for your pet‟s short memory and loving affection. 21 © Richard Butler 2010 http://www.FocusAndMotivation.com
    • 20. HONESTY. Truth is hard to come by in the world we live in. That‟s why it‟s such a blessing when we find it. 22 © Richard Butler 2010 http://www.FocusAndMotivation.com
    • 21. HOBBIES. Whether it‟s reading, crafting, woodworking, skydiving, or fishing, our hobbies and pastimes are often the most enjoyable time of our the day. They‟re certainly worthy of much gratitude. 23 © Richard Butler 2010 http://www.FocusAndMotivation.com
    • 22. NATURE. The trees rustling in the breeze, a gentle stream, squirrels and rabbits scurrying around the yard. Give thanks for the beauty and comfort that nature brings. 24 © Richard Butler 2010 http://www.FocusAndMotivation.com
    • 23. COLOR. What a boring world this would be without color! Reds, blues, greens, yellows... even black and white make the world visually attractive and interesting. 25 © Richard Butler 2010 http://www.FocusAndMotivation.com
    • 24. MUSIC. The beautiful sounds and tones in music have an almost mystical, supernatural affect on us. Think about how your favorite songs makes you feel – that‟s something to be thankful for! 26 © Richard Butler 2010 http://www.FocusAndMotivation.com
    • 25. SETBACKS. While we may never enjoy them, misadventures strengthen us and redirect us to where we‟re meant to be. 27 © Richard Butler 2010 http://www.FocusAndMotivation.com
