It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 11, Page 27, Book 19

It is literally true, as the thankless say, that they have nothing to be thankful for.  He who sits by the fire, thankless for the fire, is just as if he has no fire.  Nothing is possessed save in appreciation, of which thankfulness is the indispensable ingredient.  But a thankful heart hath a continual feast.

W.J. Cameron

November 27th- there is always something to be thankful for

The thankful receiver bears a plentiful harvest..

William Blake

Every day is a gift and there are always new things everyday to be thankful for. No two days are alike.  I live in awe and wonder of all the wonderful things that come my way.

Although we all have problems and life looks pretty bleak sometimes, there are still some things we can be thankful for.  Think about it and you’ll be glad you did.

We might not have all we want, but we do have what we need. There is a difference and that is what we are thankful for.  

Our lives can turn from horrible to wonderful when we count our blessings.  And every person has a few.  If nothing else, we can be thankful that we are alive and breathing.   We might not feel good or we might be sick but we have medicine and doctors to  help us. I try to remember always that I’m in the best hands that there is.  I’m always blessed to have what I need.  And I’m ao thankful for all of you!

When it comes to life the critical thing is whether you take things for granted or take them with gratitude.

Gilbert K Chesterton

I feel really sad for those who can't/won't count their blessings. Unfortunately, I once worked with two such individuals. Long ago I concluded there's nothing to do but hold them in my prayers.

Your personalized leaf is so sweet! You've given me an idea for our family gathering tomorrow!

I am thankful to be alive. It is good to count your blessings but mine would be like trying to count the leaves on a tree just too many to list. I can certainly appreciate those who do list, that is a task of love in itself.

Always good to count our blessings because we truly do have so many of them! Always good to give thanks for them too. I bet if we were to take 10 minutes and write down all of our blessings and all we had to be thankful for, we would fill up a page and still have more blessings to write down.

ALWAYS something for which to be thankful. Life is a gift that we open each day...Actually, I might use that line in a song we’re writing.


HAPPY THANKSGIVING. Have a wonderful day.
