"Life is not a problem. It is a miracle, a gift, a teaching, a celebration. Thanksgiving acknowledges the miracle of life - every gift - and saying "you're welcome" is a kind of thanksgiving in itself. It acknowledges the gift of thanks. It says that we live in a world of beautifully interacting thankfulness. It affirms that we live in a world awash with treasures, with miracles and blessings, that we are blessed with an endless array of people, moments, experiences, surprises, magic, curiosities, and beautiful coincidences to which our only delighted, ecstatic, and unchanging response should be thanksgiving."
~Daphne Rose Kingma~

"What you think upon grows. Whatever you allow to occupy your
mind you magnify in your life. Whether the subject of your
thought be good or bad, the law works and the condition grows.
Any subject that you keep out of your mind tends to diminish
in your life, because what you do not use atrophies. The
more you think of grievances, the more such trials you will
continue to receive; the more you think of the good fortune
you have had, the more good fortune will come to you."
~Emmet Fox~ Gratitude quotes

"Gratitude is the heart’s memory."

you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize
there is nothing lacking, the world belongs to you."
~Lao-Tzu~ Gratitude quotes
