Chapter 11, Page 21, Book 17

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainty that just to be alive is a grand thing.

Today I’m thankful for the gift of life

Thanksgiving is an attitude that must be rooted in the gift of life if we ever hope to be thankful for the gifts of life.
Craig D. Lounsbrough

When you wake each morning, you have the gift of being alive! Be thankful for it. From there, the day is ours for the making. How our lives pan out for that day comes down to how we approach our day from the moment we wake.

If we start each day by being thankful for our lives, we start off our day in a positive and happy way.

I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual... O how I laugh when I think of my vague indefinite riches. No run on my bank can drain it for my wealth is not possession but enjoyment.

Henry David Thoreau

It’s said that each of us comes into this life with a set of unique talents and special gifts.   Who you are, what you do, and how you show up in the world is special and unique. Everything you share, whether it’s your bright smile, your compassionate heart, your sharp intellect, or your quality of presence, has a ripple effect on everyone around you and beyond.

For life is a gift!  Unwrap it and discover what lies within. Cherish it! Live it! Enjoy it! It is there to be lived. Celebrate it and make the most of every moment of it.

Be glad of  life, because it gives you the chance to love and to work and to play and to look up at the stars.

Henry Van Dyke

My life is a gift. I'm grateful.

Thankful, I think that is WHO YOU ARE! And yes we are thankful also. It is an all year thing here, but I do not mind a special time to recall the words, actions and truths in LOVE & THANKFUL.
I am thankful I can get on this wild and wonderful internet while still on the road. It allows me to get to know as I read, that thankful is other's lives also.

Every day is indeed a gift. Every morning we open our eyes we should indeed be grateful that we have another day to enjoy the wonderful blessings God has given us.

Even if we only uttered two little words upon waking each morning, doesn't that count as a prayer?

Thank you for always finding and sharing super quotes to accompany your words!


WE should be grateful for our lives and savor every moment.
