Friday Frills


Do not ask for your life's load to be lightened,
But for the courage to endure.
Do not ask for fulfillment in all your life,
But for the patience to accept frustration.
Do not ask for perfection in all you do,
But for the wisdom not to repeat mistakes,
And finally...Do not ask for more before saying 
"Thank You" for what you have already received. 

Brenda Short


What have you been thankful for recently?

Lately I have been feeling really grateful. These are such beautiful words and I love the last line to say thank you first.
Also sorry I didn't answer your question from yesterday! Finals are making me forgetful :)
I mostly use soy as a substitute for dairy (i.e.: soymilk or soy cream cheese.) I also have coconut milk ice cream and more Asian foods (that tend to be vegan in general.) I'll make a bigger post on this soon for one of these Vegan Wednesday posts!

xoxo,
Paris

Wow, this is a beautiful post, I love this quote. And I've been really thankful for my family, friends and vacation. As you can probably tell from the last sentence I have vacation now and I've been hanging out a lot with my friends and family and it has been really nice, so I'm thankful for that. And I'm thankful for all of my followers, readers and commenters; they're all so sweet.

Fortunately, I have had a lot to be thankful for. A beautiful home, a good job, great colleagues, and a wonderful husband. Sure their are trials, but they make life even more special.

Thanks for this beautiful post, and for helping us remember our blessings!

Beautiful.. Reminded me of this story I've heard (from the Bible) about a man who was stuck on the roof of his house during flood. He prayed for God for help but nothing happened. People came by and asked him to step in the boat, but he just said that God will help him. Prayed again and more people came.. Eventually he died and went to heaven, and he asked God why He hadn't answered to his prayers. God answered that he did, but the man had turned everyone away.

Not really completely about your post, but this came to my mind. I'm not really religious, but I love the stories and the things they can teach us. :)
