I hope you are able to spend this special holiday with good friends and family.
I have many things to be thankful for. What I treasure most are my loving and supportive family and friends. Here are a few thoughts on being thankful and a cute little Thanksgiving Poem. Thank you cousin Larry for both.
Gratitude is the memory of the heart. – Massieu
Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.
- Melody Beattie
If “thank you” is the only prayer you say, that will be enough. – Meister Eckhart
If you never learned the lesson of thankfulness, begin now. Sum up your mercies; see what provision God has made for your happiness, what opportunities for your usefulness, and what advantages for your success. – Ida S. Taylor
At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us. – Albert Schweitzer
It is impossible to be negative while we are giving thanks. – Donald Curtis
No one is as capable of gratitude as one who has emerged from the kingdom of night. – Elie Wiesel
None is more impoverished than the one who has no gratitude. Gratitude is a currency that we can mint for ourselves, and spend without fear of bankruptcy. – Fred De Witt Van Amburgh
Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.
- W. T. Purkiser
Thanksgiving was never meant to be shut up in a single day. – Robert C. Linter
There is no better opportunity to receive more than to be thankful for what you already have. Thanksgiving opens the windows of opportunity for ideas to flow your way. – Jim Rohn
A Thanksgiving Poem
Twas the night of Thanksgiving, but I just couldn’t sleep.
I tried counting backwards, I tried counting sheep.
The leftovers beckoned, the dark meat and white
But I fought the temptation with all of my might.
Tossing and turning with anticipation,
The thought of a snack became infatuation.
So I raced to the kitchen, flung open the door
and gazed at the fridge, full of goodies galore.
I gobbled up turkey and buttered potatoes,
pickles and carrots, beans and tomatoes.
I felt myself swelling, so plump and so round,
‘Til all of a sudden, I rose off of the ground.
I crashed through the ceiling, floating into the sky
With a mouthful of pudding and a handful of pie.
But I managed to yell as I soared past the trees…
Happy Eating to all…Pass the cranberries please!
May your stuffing be tasty, may your turkey be plump.
May your potatoes ‘n gravy have narry a lump.
May your yams be delicious, may your pies take the prize,
May your Thanksgiving Dinner stay off of your thighs.
Have a blessed and truly Happy Thanksgiving!
