"Happy Thanksgiving!!" she said.

Welcome to a few new followers and HAPPY THANKSGIVING to you ALL!!  I sincerely hope that you all have a wonderful day tomorrow with family, friends, and everyone who loves and appreciates your pure awesomeness.  Holidays are the best!

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.
~J.A. Shedd

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 turkey...err funny bone:

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!
~Author Unknown

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?  :)
