How To Be Thankful

Count your blessings instead of your crosses;
Count your gains instead of your losses;
Count your joys instead of your woes;
Count your friends instead of your foes;
Count your smiles instead of your tears;
Count your courage instead of your fears;
Count your full years instead of your lean;
Count your kind deeds instead of your mean;
Count your health instead of your wealth;
Count on God instead of yourself.
(Thanks to Sr. Mary of the HF, OP)

Same here. I'm constantly having to remind myself of this. And I always run to the Blessed Mother and she helps me so much.
