Curso de Inglês para Tímidos: Lição 23

Hey there! I was watching this interview with self-help book writer Louise Hay. Louise is in her eighties and always says that this decade will be her best decade. One of her lessons is to be thankful everyday for the good things that happen to us.

Well, I’m always thankful for my health, my work, my family and friends. And you?

    I’m thankful for my family, because they give a lot of love and support, I’m thankful for my health and for the live I have today.
    But the most important thing we could be thankful for is about God/Jesus and everything he gave to us. Thank you and take care you all.
