Be Thankful

Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire,
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don’t know something
For it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations
Because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge
Because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes
They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you’re tired and weary
Because it means you’ve made a difference.

It is easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are

also thankful for the setbacks.
GRATITUDE can turn a negative into a positive.

Find a way to be thankful for your troubles
and they can become your blessing

George Civello

Man of Steel - it IS the Superman movie we've been waiting for.

It's bigger than we've ever seen in every aspect - it has great acting, a very solid storyline, some absolutely essential supporting acting, it's got TONS of suspense, it's very intense, some very sad moments, some great jokes, lots of references to keep the most die-hard fans engaged and the action (WOW! the action) is relentless during the third act. Just when you think your heartbeat can settle down a bit, bam! Synder sucks you back for the final fight.

I was put through a roller-coaster of emotions during the film. It caught hold of me from the beginning sequence and never let up.

Not everyone is going to like it and I can see why. There were some liberties taken with the Superman mythology (just a few - no spoilers here). But, I loved it. As a re-boot, re-make, re-incarnation (insert whatever word you want to use), IT works and works fantastically well.

Forget what you know about Superman and go enjoy this movie for the exceptional acting, storytelling and action. Everyone has said it before and I will agree, Henry Cavill IS Superman. When you see this movie, you will believe it too.
