Thanksgiving 2010.o, 2010.p, 2010.q, 2010.r, & 2010.s
Sometimes, when you don’t know what to say, it’s best to let someone else do the talking.
“Real life isn’t always going to be perfect or go our way, but the recurring acknowledgement of what is working in our lives can help us not only to survive but surmount our difficulties.” ~ Sarah Ban Breathnach
“Thou that has given so much to me,
Give one thing more–a grateful heart;
Not thankful when it pleaseth me,
As if thy blessings had spare days;
But such a heart, whose pulse may be
~ George Herbert
“Gratitude is a vaccine, an antitoxin, and an antiseptic.” ~ John Henry Jowett
“Both abundance and lack exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend… when we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that’s present — love, health, family, friends, work, the joys of nature and personal pursuits that bring us pleasure — the wasteland of illusion falls away and we experience Heaven on earth.” ~ Sarah Ban Breathnach

“O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
O give thanks unto the God of gods: for his mercy endureth for ever.
O give thanks to the Lord of lords: for his mercy endureth for ever.
O give thanks unto the God of heaven: for his mercy endureth for ever.”
~ Psalms 136:1-3, 26
“God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say “thank you?” ~ William A. Ward
