On Being Thankful -- November 24, 2016

 

Wherever you may be and whomever you may be with -

may your day be filled with more than a moment of being thankful.

 

Today.  

On Thanksgiving.  

And Everyday.   

 

 

I’d like to share some thoughts which seem appropriate

on the subject of being thankful:

 
 
 

If you are really thankful, what do you do? You share.

 

W. Clement Stone

 
 

I'm thankful for every moment.

 

Al Green

 
 

In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out.

It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being.

We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.

 

Albert Schweitzer

 
 

All I ever wanted really, and continue to want out of life, is to give 100 percent to whatever I'm doing and to be committed to whatever I'm doing and then let the results speak for themselves.

Also to never take myself or people for granted and

always be thankful and grateful to the people who helped me.

 

Jackie Joyner-Kersee

 
 
 

Be thankful for problems.

If they were less difficult, someone with less ability might have your job.

 

Jim Lovell

 
 

In the household in which I was raised, the themes were pretty simple.

'Work hard. Don't quit. Be appreciative,

be thankful, be grateful, be respectful.

Also, never whine, never complain.

And always, for crying out loud, keep a sense of humor.'

 

Michael Keaton

I'm with Gayle Rich-Boxman Fishhawk Lake Realtor (503)755-2905 in that I think having a sense of humor is the most important. As long as you can poke fun at some downer event, you can get through it.

When collecting quotes this year, I looked at previous Thanksgiving posts  to make sure I didn't repeat --- maybe next year's edition will include a compilation of some favorites.

Hi Michael

Well I missed this on Thanksgiving but so glad Pat included it so I would enjoy it a few days late. What wonderful sentiments you've shared with us! I think having a sense of humor is so important, although there are times when it's harder to do.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Great thoughts on thankfulness. I was blessed this Thanksgiving to have most of my family in one place.  That doesn't happen often.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
