I hope all of my American readers had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Here are some of my favorite quotes about gratitude to encourage you to keep counting your blessings all year long.
“So then as long as thanks was possible, then joy was always possible. The holy grail of joy was not in some exotic location or some emotional mountain peak experience. The joy wonder could be here, in the messy, piercing ache of now.”
“I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.”
“Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has plenty; not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.”
“In ordinary life, we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give, and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich.”
“Gratitude is an offering precious in the sight of God, and it is one that the poorest of us can make and be not poorer but richer for having made it.”
“A spirit of thankfulness is one of the most distinctive marks of a Christian whose heart is attuned to the Lord.”
“Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude.”
