Expressions of Thanks

A few quotes for Thanksgiving-

“Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.”

– William Arthur Ward

“If the only prayer you say in your life is thank you, that would suffice.”

– Meister Eckhart

“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

“Gratitude is riches. Complaint is poverty.”

– Doris Day

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

– Epictetus

“Blessed are those that can give without remembering and receive without forgetting.”

– Author Unknown

 “Find the good and praise it.”

– Alex Haley

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my readers. Be grateful today and every day. I know I am 🙂

    Happy Thanksgiving,

    I’ve been watching the NY Time Square cam lately to see if you might be walking around somewhere, but I have yet to spot you.

      Happy belated Thanksgiving. No I wasn’t in Times Square, but if there was a cam below Houston Street you might have spotted me 🙂

      Great to hear from you!
