"As disciples of Christ, we are commanded to 'thank the Lord (our) God in all things', to 'sing unto the Lord with thanksgiving', and to 'Let (our) heart be full of thanks unto God.' "
We live in a time where we always want more and more, and I confess I am guilty of that and get frustrated when bad things happen. Recent events have occurred that have forced my husband and me out of our home. Instead of responding negatively like I normally would with a problem like this, I decided to try to be grateful. I discovered that my whole perspective changed when I began to do that. I looked past the problem and realized I had so much to be thankful for despite these difficult times. I realized I was blessed and an overwhelming peace and happiness filled me. Like all things, this too shall pass, but I will never forget what happened when I changed my attitude and began to look for the good in my life. I believe my husband and I have learned an important lesson that I hope we will apply time and time again.
"Every one's situation is different, and the details of each life are unique. Nevertheless, I have learned that there is something that would take away the bitterness that may come into our lives. There is one thing we can do to make life sweeter, more joyful, even glorious.
We can be Grateful!"
-President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
