Giving Thanks

"Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns; I am thankful that thorns have roses." ~Alphonse Karr


"Let us rise up and be thankful; for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so let us all be thankful." ~Buddha


"A woman has got to love a bad man once or twice in her life, to be thankful for a good one." ~Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings


"So often we dwell on the things that seem impossible rather than on the things that are possible.  So often we are depressed by what remains to be done and forget to be thankful for all that has been done." ~Marian Wright Edelman


"The thankful receiver bears a plentiful harvest." ~William Blake 


We are thankful for our loving family, good health, safety, shelter, happiness, perseverance... and YOU!  We wish you a peaceful holiday and a delicious Thanksgiving dinner.

Thank you for visiting my little corner and leaving a comment. I do not have any red roses in my garden, most of the roses I photograph are around the neighbourhood or next door in "Wonderland".

Oh! Just had a surprise from a friend... a cake dropped off at my door, and then came to find these lovely reminding quotes, too. The Lord and YOU have made my morning so pleasant and blessed. Thank you.

P.S.The Alphonse Karr and Marian Wright Edelman
quotes are JUST what I needed! Lovely, oh so lovely. Along with the quote at the top of your right-hand column by Flavia Weedn. So glad I stopped by this morning... What a breath of fresh air. sigh... :-)
