Be Thankful

 
 
 
"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

"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
                                       

             Here's some Thanksgiving history
 
"Thou hast given so much to me, Give one thing more, a grateful heart." ~George Herbert

 
“Reflect upon your present blessings -- of which every man has many -- not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.”  ~Charles Dickens
 

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
 
 
I feel blessed to have met so many wonderful quilting friends since I started this blog. And I am grateful for the community we all share. I hope you have safe travels and a wonderful holiday with family!
 
                                           
 
                        Isn't this a cute pilgrim hat cookie recipe?

Ingredients:

Keebler Fudge Striped cookies
Reese's Peanut Butter cup miniatures
Yellow frosting

Directions:

Turn cookies upside down. Frost the top of a peanut butter cup with the yellow frosting. Place the cup face down in the center of the cookie. Draw a square buckle using the yellow frosting.
