Happy Thanksgiving

Holiday quotes and expressions of thanks on this Thanksgiving Day 2010.  And some photos too:-)
"If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, 
"thank you," that would suffice."
-Meister Eckhart

Do not get tired of doing what is good.  Don't get discouraged and give up,
For we will reap a harvest of blessing at the appropriate time. 
Galatians 6:9

Best of all is it to preserve everything in a pure, still heart, and 
let there be for every pulse a thanksgiving, and for every breath a song.  
Konrad von Gesner

Thanksgiving, when the Indians said, "Well, this has been fun, 
but we know you have a long voyage back to England”. 
 Jay Leno

Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them,
 is the true measure of our thanksgiving. 
WT Purkiser

Thanksgiving Day comes, by statute, once a year; to the honest man it 
comes as frequently as the heart of gratitude will allow. 
Edward Sandford Martin

Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on 
what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough. 
Oprah Winfrey

Happiness is the realization of God in the heart. Happiness is the result of 
praise and thanksgiving, of faith, of acceptance; 
a quiet tranquil realization of the love of God. 
White Eagle

I love Thanksgiving turkey...it's the only time 
in Los Angeles that you see natural breasts. 
Arnold Schwarzenegger

 "Those early Pilgrims were thankful for what had happened to them, and we should be thankful, too. We should just be thankful for being together. 
I think that's what they mean by 'Thanksgiving"
Charlie Brown. 

"Perhaps no custom reveals our character as a Nation so clearly as our celebration of Thanksgiving Day. Rooted deeply in our Judeo-Christian heritage, the practice of offering thanksgiving underscores our unshakable belief in God as the foundation of our Nation and our firm reliance upon Him from Whom all blessings flow."President Ronald Reagan, Thanksgiving Day, 1986

 "I do not think of all the misery, but of the glory that remains. 
Go outside into the fields, nature and the sun, go out and seek 
happiness in yourself and in God. Think of the beauty that again and again 

discharges itself within and without you and be happy."
Anne Frank

“Love wholeheartedly, be surprised, give thanks and praise… 
then you will discover the fullness of your life.”
Brother David Steindl-Rast

“Thank you, dear God For all You have given me,
For all You have taken away from me,
For all You have left me.”

“For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

“May your stuffing be tasty May your turkey plump,
May your potatoes and gravy Have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!”

Thank you, Father, for having created us and given us to each other. 
Thank you for being with us in all our joys and sorrows, for your comfort in our sadness, 
your companionship 
in our loneliness. Thank you for yesterday, today, 
and for the 
whole of our lives. Thank you for friends, 
for health and for grace. 
May we live this and every day conscious of all that has been given to us.
From The Catholic Prayer Book
