My favorite holiday - all the joy of the season, with none of the gifts. Just pure thankfulness from the heart. And football. Lots and lots of football.
"Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has many--not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some."
"A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all the other virtues."
"O Lord, who lends me life, lend me a heart replete with thankfulness."
"If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, "thank you," that would suffice."
"The Pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts. No Americans have been more impoverished than these who, nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving."
