I am focusing on thanks giving this month. I love quotes and wanted to share some about gratitude which I appreciate, from the website, Goodreads. Can we pause for a moment and give thanks? Thank you for joining me.
“Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude.”
― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayer…”
― Maya Angelou, Celebrations: Rituals of Peace and Prayer
“If the only prayer you said was thank you, that would be enough.”
― Meister Eckhart
“To be grateful is to recognize the Love of God in everything He has given us – and He has given us everything. Every breath we draw is a gift of His love, every moment of existence is a grace, for it brings with it immense graces from Him.
Gratitude therefore takes nothing for granted, is never unresponsive, is constantly awakening to new wonder and to praise of the goodness of God. For the grateful person knows that God is good, not by hearsay but by experience. And that is what makes all the difference.”
― Thomas Merton
