Happy Thanksgiving!!!

November 25, 2010

We look forward to Thanksgiving every year because it is an opportunity to spend time with family and friends, and enjoy wonderful food. As I look around, I realize how much I have to be thankful for, not just today but every day. I live in the United States, where I have the freedom to voice my own opinions without being arrested, I have clean water, a comfortable home, family and friends I cherish, and plenty to eat. I am truly rich! We shouldn’t need a special day to realize how blessed we are, but it is a wonderful thing to have a day where everyone is united in appreciation.

Here are some thoughts for today:
“Being happy doesn’t mean everything is perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.” (Unknown)

“I ask not for more riches, but for more wisdom with which to use the riches I have already been given.” — Napoleon Hill

“I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances.” – – Martha Washington

And finally,
“Live each day as if it is a precious gift, because it is.” – – John Di Lemme (Quote #9)
