Thanksgiving Thoughts, Part III

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget
that the highest appreciation is not to utter words,
but to live by them.
~John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Gratitude is a quality similar to electricity:
it must be produced and discharged and used up in order to exist at all.
~William Faulkner

Who does not thank for little will not thank for much.
~Estonian Proverb

If a fellow isn't thankful for what he's got,
he isn't likely to be thankful for what he's going to get.
~Frank A. Clark

Forever on Thanksgiving Day
The heart will find the pathway home.
~Wilbur D. Nesbit

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

    -God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say "thank you?" ~William A. Ward

    -The unthankful heart... discovers no mercies; but let the thankful heart sweep through the day and, as the magnet finds the iron, so it will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings! ~Henry Ward Beecher

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

    Here's taking a moment to say THANK YOU, Eleanor, for your thoughtful, often educational, and frequently amusing blogs, as well as the smiles your creations generally elicit!

    In addition, I appreciate your friendship. As Marcel Proust once wrote, "Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom."

    May each of your three Thanksgiving celebrations this year be glorious and blessed, as you are surrounded, sheltered, and strengthened by those you love, and who love you! ~SW
