What Thanksgiving Means To Me

Thanksgiving is a time for me to reflect upon good things in
my life and remember why I am grateful.
Gratitude is something that is easy to feel and think about.
Gratitude is an important and rewarding
part of my life.
We should reflect on gratitude all year round.
" As we express our gratitude, we must never forget,
the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them"
~John Fitzgerald Kennedy
Be thankful for each new challenge,
because it will build strength and character.
Gratitude makes sense of our past,
brings peace for today,
and creates a vision for tomorrow.
" I give thanks unto thee, O Lord,
and sing praises unto thy name"
~Psalms 30.12
I am thankful for the many blessings in my life.
My wonderful husband
My two beautiful daughters, Pony Girl & Paint Girl
My family
My animals
My health

I am thankful for each of you my friends for blessing me

with your wonderful friendship!

"O Lord that lends me life,

Lend me a heart replete with thankfulness"

~William Shakespeare

For flowers that bloom about our feet;

For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet;

For song of bird, and hum of bee;

for all things fair, we hear and see;

Father in heaven, we thank THEE!

~Ralph Waldo Emerson
