Some thoughts on thankfulness ...

Gratitude is something of which none of us can give too much.
For on the smiles, the thanks we give,
our little gestures of appreciation,
our neighbors build their philosophy of life.  
(A. J. Cronin)

 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 )

Gratitude helps you to grow and expand;
gratitude brings joy and laughter into your life
and into the lives of all those around you.
(Eileen Caddy)

When eating bamboo sprouts,
remember the man who planted them” 
(Chinese Proverb)

Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns.
I am thankful that thorns have roses.
(Allophones Karr)

Grace isn't a little prayer you chant before receiving a meal.
It's a way to live
(Jackie Windspear)

 We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our
hearts are conscious of our treasures.
(Thornton Wilder)

If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you,
it will be enough.
(Meister Eckhardt)

There is always, always, always something to be thankful for.
