You can be thankful

One evening on the way home from his office, Matthew Henry was robbed while walking down the street. The thieves took everything of value. Before going to bed, he wrote in his diary, “Let me be thankful, first, because I was never robbed before; second, because although they took my purse, they did not take my life; third, because although they took my all, it was not much; and fourth, because it was I who was robbed, not I who robbed.”

If Matthew Henry found ways to be thankful in being robbed, certainly you can be thankful in whatever circumstances you find yourself today.
