A few things I'm thankful for - my family (of course!!), my friends (in real life AND on-line), some other important stuff (job, home, clothes, food, freedom, etc.), my freedom to write fiction (and a little God-given talent, I hope) - there's so many things to be thankful for!
So enjoy your day and also a few Thanksgiving (serious and/or funny) quotes/poems I dug up from the QuoteGarden.
For your serious/heartfelt holiday moods:
As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. ~John Fitzgerald Kennedy
Gratitude is the sign of noble souls. ~Aesop
He who thanks but with the lips
Thanks but in part;
The full, the true Thanksgiving
Comes from the heart.
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
To tickle your
An optimist is a person who starts a new diet on Thanksgiving Day. ~Irv Kupcinet
Thanksgiving, man. Not a good day to be my pants. ~Kevin James
I love Thanksgiving turkey. It's the only time in Los Angeles that you see natural breasts. ~Arnold Schwarzenegger
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!
And for the Football fans out there:
Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not coincidence. ~Erma Bombeck
Hope you all have a good one! What are you thankful for this year? :)
