I hope you are celebrating this wonderful holiday with family or friends. Whether you are enjoying a big home cooked dinner or going out for something special, enjoy the flavors and the fellowship.
Today, I simply have some quotes to reflect on for this holiday along with some great nature photos:
“Gratitude is the sign of noble souls.”…..Aesop
“I receive all of life with thanksgiving – I have gratitude for EVERYTHING that has ever occurred to bring me to this moment. I give thanks for the joys and the sufferings, the moments of peace and the flashes of anger, the compassion and the indifference, the roar of courage and the cold sweat of my fear. I accept gratefully the entirety of my past and my present life.” …..Jonathon Lockwood Huie
“I have always believed, and I still believe, that whatever good or bad fortune may come our way we can always give it meaning and transform it into something of value.” …Hermann Hesse
“Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.” ….W.T. Purkiser
“Some people complain because God put thorns on roses, while others praise him for putting roses among thorns.” …Anonymous
And now to end with a little holiday humor, enjoy these funny bits and continue laughing all day with the ones you are with!
“No one diets on Thanksgiving. What we’re really talking about is a wonderful day set aside on the fourth Thursday of November when no one diets. I mean, why else would they call it Thanksgiving?” …..Erma Bombeck
“It was dramatic to watch my grandmother decapitate a turkey with an ax the day before Thanksgiving. Nowadays, the expense of hiring grandmothers for the ax work would probably qualify all turkeys so honored with ‘gourmet’ status.” …Russell Baker
“My cooking is so bad my kids thought Thanksgiving was to commemorate Pearl Harbor.” ….Phyllis Diller
