This weekend we are celebrating Thanksgiving in Canada. Every day of the year I give thanks for my good fortunes and this time of year I reflect on what is important. My family. The people I rely on every day to make me smile, give me support and love.
As we celebrate family, time together, (and the harvest), here are some of my favorite ‘thankful quotes’.
- “Sometimes life knocks you on your ass… get up, get up, get up!!! Happiness is not the absence of problems, it’s the ability to deal with them.” ~ Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free
- “We must find time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives.”
~ John F. Kennedy
- 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
- “We should certainly count our blessings, but we should also make our blessings count.” ~ Neal A. Maxwell
and above all…
Give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way. ~ Native American Saying
