Happy Thanksgiving!

"Got no check books, got no banks. Still I'd like to express my thanks - I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night."
-Irving Berlin

"The Pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts. No Americans have been more impoverished than these who, nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving."
-H.U. Westermayer

"When our perils are past, shall our gratitude sleep?"
-George Canning

"If you count all your assets, you always show a profit."
-Robert Quillen

"Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving."
-W.T. Purkiser

"Thanksgiving is nothing if not a glad and reverent lifting of the heart to God in honor and praise for His goodness."
-Robert Casper Lintner

"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

God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say "thank you?"
-William A. Ward
