Thankful & Blessed

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.

"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

“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

Remembrance: Veterans Day

On this special day of honor & recognition, we say THANK YOU to all who have served, as well as those who continue to serve, our great nation. Our lives would not be the same without your loyalty, bravery, and sacrifices! God Bless You & Keep You Always!!! ❤️

"Veterans Day occurs on Nov. 11 every year in the United States in honor of the “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month" of 1918 that signaled the end of World War I, known as Armistice Day. In 1954, President Dwight D. Eisenhower officially changed the name of the holiday from Armistice Day to Veterans Day.

In 1968, the Uniform Holidays Bill was passed by Congress, which moved the celebration of Veterans Day to the fourth Monday in October. The law went into effect in 1971, but in 1975 President Gerald Ford returned Veterans Day to Nov. 11, due to the important historical significance of the date. Veterans Day commemorates veterans of all wars."

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13

"Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices."
-Harry S. Truman
