A Quick Lesson in Gratitude

One of our Class 11 graduates lost his job last week. Rather than feeling sorry for himself, what did he do?

He came by the PEP office and donated $100. He wanted us to know how much he appreciated what PEP had done to change his life.

May each of us find such gratitude when faced with hardships!

    When life gives you lemons, make some lemonade. We must remember that life is more or less a lesson book. Each day were learning and taking a test. Your test may be bigger than mine. Just continue to challenge yourself and not look at (for example) losing a job as a negative but something positive. There apparently must be something better for you and it’s waiting for you to come get it. This person instead of looking down at the situation decided to donate money in the middle of his financial situation. That is his faith challenging him. Best of luck to this person and may your employment situation turn around soon for the better.
