God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today.  Have you used one to say thank youWilliam A. Ward

When we were children we were grateful to those who filled our stockings at Christmas time.  Why are we not grateful to God for filling our stockings with legs?  ~G.K. Chesterton

You say grace before meals.  All right.  But I say grace before the concert and the opera, and grace before the play and pantomime, and grace before I open a book, and grace before sketching, painting, swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing and grace before I dip the pen in the ink.  ~G.K. Chesterton

He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has.  ~Epictetus

Hem your blessings with thankfulness so they don’t unravel.  ~Author Unknown

Not what we give,
But what we share,
For the gift
without the giver
Is bare.
~James Russell Lowell

Two kinds of gratitude: The sudden kind we feel for what we take; the larger kind we feel for what we give.
Author – Edwin Arlington Robinson

Both abundance and lack exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend… when we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that’s present — love, health, family, friends, work, the joys of nature and personal pursuits that bring us pleasure — the wasteland of illusion falls away and we experience heaven on earth. – Sarah Ban BreathnachHeaven

The Pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts. No Americans have been more impoverished than these who, nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving. –H.U. Westermayer
