A Year Full of Blessings

One of my favorite quotes about thanksgiving/being thankful is the one by Oprah Winfrey that went like this:

Be thankful for what you have, you'll end up having more.
If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never ever have enough.

So in the spirit of the season, allow me to share some beautiful thoughts.

“Do not indulge in dreams of having what you have not, but reckon up the chief of the blessings you do possess, and then thankfully remember how you would crave for them if they were not yours.” ~ Marcus Aurelius

“It isn’t what you have in your pocket that makes you thankful, but what you have in your heart.” ~ Author Unknown
