Always be Thankful

Let us rise up and be thankful,
for if we didn’t learn a lot today,
at least we learned a little,
and if we didn’t learn a little,
at least we didn’t get sick,
and if we got sick,
at least we didn’t die;
so, let us be thankful.

-The Buddha

James's comment: No matter what our situation we can always find something to be thankful for.

-Peace to all beings-

This reminds me of the saying, "You can find humor in every situation." Maybe it's just me, but I find the Buddha quite hilarious at times.

I agree that the Buddha is hilarious at times. I think that laughter is an important aspect of the dharma and living mindfully.
