{*Special} Thanksgiving Quotes & Sayings


Thanksgiving is a time, and maybe the only time for some, to be truly thankful for everything you have in life. To kick off the kind, thankful season, I wanted to share my favorite Thanks Giving Quotes to make you feel grateful (and a few to make you chuckle). As a typical human being, I am definitely guilty of not being thankful every single day, all year round. All I can say is thank goodness Thanksgiving rolls around right before the holiday season. I think it’s the reason everyone becomes so instantly cheery, at least through the end of the year.
·         The unthankful heart... discovers no mercies; but let the thankful heart sweep through the day and, as the magnet finds the iron, so it will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings! 
·         -Henry Ward Beecher
·        
Best of all is it to preserve everything in a pure, still heart, and let there be for every pulse a thanksgiving, and for every breath a song.

How wonderful it would be if we could help our children and grandchildren to learn thanksgiving at an early age. Thanksgiving opens the doors. It changes a child's personality. A child is resentful, negative-or thankful. Thankful children want to give, they radiate happiness, they draw people.
-         Sir John Templeton
·        
Gratitude ... goes beyond the "mine" and "thine" and claims the truth that all of life is a pure gift. In the past I always thought of gratitude as a spontaneous response to the awareness of gifts received, but now I realize that gratitude can also be lived as a discipline. The discipline of gratitude is the explicit effort to acknowledge that all I am and have is given to me as a gift of love, a gift to be celebrated with joy.
-         Henri J. M. Nouwen
·        
Do not get tired of doing what is good. Don't get discouraged and give up, for we will reap a harvest of blessing at the appropriate time.
-         Galatians 6:9
·        
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

·         If your family is anything like mine, you will be asked this year, just like every year, what you are thankful for. I used to pull some random idea out of thin air, like being thankful for a job I love, or for my dog. Not this year. With these quotes in my back pocket, I plan to whip the best one out when it’s my turn at the Thanksgiving table. A touching quote followed by an “I’m so thankful for everyone here at this table.” BOOM. Thanksgiving win.
·         Even if you aren’t prepping this as a go-to list on Turkey Day, these quotes are the best way to remember what Thanksgiving is all about — being thankful, and eating and/or drinking way too much with family and friends. So as we look forward to Thanksgiving, look to these quotes to really get you in the mood before you stuff your face with all that delicious turkey.
