I want to share with you all some beautiful expressions of gratitude as we approach the upcoming holidays. Please remember that we should not only resign ourselves to gratitude during the holidays but all the days of our lives.

I pray they touch your heart in some way. My hope is that we are all able to learn gratitude - in all our circumstances, even the most difficult times in our lives; for each of these is also a chance for us to grow and bloom.

For, after all, put it as we may to ourselves, we are all of us from birth to death guests at a table which we did not spread. The sun, the earth, love, friends, our very breath are parts of the banquet.... Shall we think of the day as a chance to come nearer to our Host, and to find out something of Him who has fed us so long?
~Rebecca Harding Davis

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.
~Melody Beattie

Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.
~W.T. Purkiser

Thanksgiving Day comes, by statute, once a year; to the honest man it comes as frequently as the heart of gratitude will allow.
~Edward Sandford Martin

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
