Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on our blessings and give thanks for our health, family, and friends. But gratitude is a habit that when practiced daily can transform bitterness to love, resentment to joy, weakness (of body, mind, and spirit) to strength, and feelings of lacking into abundance.
Below are a few quotes to inspire an Attitude of Gratitude:
“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.”
“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.”
― William Arthur Ward
“When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.”
― Maya Angelou
“Some people grumble that roses have thorns; I am grateful that thorns have roses.”
― Alphonse Karr, A Tour Round My Garden
“Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others.”
― Marcus Tullius Cicero
“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
