Giving Thanks...


"Let us remember that, as much has been given us, much will be expected from us, and that true homage comes from the heart as well as from the lips, and shows itself in deeds."
~Theodore Roosevelt

"We give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way."
~Author Unknown

"We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures."
~Thornton Wilder

“We can lift ourselves and others as well, when we refuse to remain in the realm of negative thought and cultivate within our hearts an attitude of gratitude.”
~Thomas S. Monson

15. “If you concentrate on finding whatever is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures the soul.”
~Harold Kushner

"Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action."
~W.J. Cameron

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow."
~Melody Beattie


From my family to yours...wishing you all an absolutely beautiful and blessed Thanksgiving Day!
May we never forget that there is always, always, always something to be thankful for. :)

    3. Thank you JRS! We did have a really, really wonderful Thanksgiving this year. I'm glad to hear that yours was, as well. Melody's quote is also one of my favorites, and oh so true. :)
