Count Your Blessings

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson



 If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.   ~Meister Eckhart


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



Thou hast given so much to me, Give one thing more, a grateful heart.   ~George Herbert



Thanksgiving Day is a jewel, to set in the hearts of honest men; but be careful that you do not take the day, and leave out the gratitude. ~E.P. Powell



As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. ~John Fitzgerald Kennedy

  1. Thank you! I'm very grateful for having so much "good" in my life right now. Believe me, I've also had my share of the not-so-good as well and it makes you appreciate the rest.
