In Gratitude – Thoughts on Thanksgiving
In Gratitude – Thanksgiving
Some of you I know well and some of you I’ve never met, but I wanted to thank you for connecting with me. Extending warm wishes to you during this time of Thanksgiving.
My wish for you is . . . a deep appreciation and sense of abundance for all that you are, all that you give and all that you have – your friends, family, your work, your home. In appreciating what we have, we can experience greater enjoyment instead of lack, greater peace instead of hassle, and greater love instead of longing.
So whether you are at a gathering with your friends or family or relaxing in solitude I’m wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving.
Thoughts on Gratitude and Abundance
“Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful.” – Buddha
“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” – Winston Churchill
“If only people who worry about their liabilities would think about the riches they do possess, they would stop worrying. Would you sell both your eyes for a million dollars… or your two legs… or your hearing? Add up what you do have, and you’ll find that you won’t sell them for all the gold in the world. The best things in life are yours, if you can appreciate yourself” – Dale Carnegie
“In daily we must see that it is not happiness that makes us grateful, but gratefulness that makes us happy.” – David Steindl-Rast
“When we give of our attention, we give of our soul. One moment of pure attention is worth a pound of gold.” – Lisa
“I thank God for my handicaps for, through them, I have found myself, my work, and my God. – “Helen Keller
“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
