Thankful Thursday

By the time most of you read this, I should be well on my way to Florida.  Hopefully safely.  Since I wrote this on Tuesday night, I am not actually going to post 5 things for which I'm thankful.  Because I like to do it on the day that I'm actually thankful.  And this was pre-written.  Get it?  
So, I'm going  to leave you some quotes about thankfulness that I've found and enjoyed.

"I am thankful for small mercies. I compared notes with one of my friends who expect everything of the universe, and is disappointed when anything is less than the best, and I found that I begin at the other extreme, expecting nothing, and am always full of thanks for moderate good. . . . If we will take the good we find, . . . we shall have heaping measures."--Ralph Waldo Emerson
 "The only people with whom you should try to get even are those who have helped you".  ~John E. Southard"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom." --Marcel Proust

 "I thank God for my handicaps, for through them, I have found myself, my work and my God."--Helen Keller

"He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has."  ~Epictetus

"You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing to you and not be silent.  O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever."  Psalm 30:11-12(NIV)

This post was pre-written.  I would love to hear your comments!  Please feel free to leave them, but I won't be able to respond until March 12th when we return from vacation.  Have a blessed day!
