There is one day that is ours. Thanksgiving Day is the one day that is purely American.
"Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not coincidence."
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.
"You can tell you ate too much for Thanksgiving when you have to let your bathrobe out."
It Is Not Happy People Who are thankful
It Is Thankful People Who Are Happy.
Sincerely giving thanks not only helps us recognize our blessings, but it also unlocks the doors of Heaven.
Enter his gates with Thanksgiving,
And his courts with Praise.
Not what we say about our Blessings
But how we use them, is the true measure of our Thanksgiving.
As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.
My fondest memories are generally the day after Thanksgiving.
I get the total decorating Christmas itch.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with Thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.
He who thanks but with the lips
Thanks but in part,
The full, the true Thanksgiving
Comes from the heart.
"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."
We often take for granted the very things,
that most deserve our gratitude.
"Thanksgiving comes to us out of the prehistoric dimness, universal to all ages and all faiths. At whatever straws we must grasp, there is always a time for gratitude and new beginnings."
