On this beautiful Thursday morning, as we are celebrating Thanksgiving in the United States, let’s take a minute to focus on what really matters: health, family, friends, caring, giving, loving, and showing appreciation.
As I am reflecting on my purpose on this earth and my many blessings, I want to share with you some of my favorite quotes about gratitude.
Be thankful for what you have, you will end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never ever have enough. Oprah Winfrey
Learn to be thankful for what you already have while you pursue all that you want. Jim Rohn
It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy that makes happiness. Charles Spurgeon
I am thankful for being able to manage my chronic condition and live fully every day. I am thankful for my family, my friends, and all the people I am blessed to serve and help as a nurse.
Seeds of discouragement cannot take root in a grateful heart. Choose to see the best in every situation. Joel Osteen.
Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayer. Let faith be the bridge you build to overcome evil and welcome good. Maya Angelou
The struggle ends when gratitude begins. Neale Donald Walsch.
There are days where we cannot see past our struggles; if we take a minute to look back at our blessings and be thankful for them, that will bring us joy, hope, a faint smile, and some unknown strength to overcome the challenges.
Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it. William Arthur Ward
Gratitude is the healthiest of all human emotions. The more you express gratitude for what you have, the more likely you will have even more to express gratitude for. Zig Ziglar
Gratitude is the single most important ingredient to living a successful and fulfilled life. Jack Canfield
Wherever you are, be grateful, be fully present, and be thankful the little things, as I always say, they always lead to a rich and beautiful life. Gratefully, Marjie

I love these quotes, Kate!
You are so right and I feel liek the rest of the year I forget to stop and be grateful! Something to work on!
It’s important to be grateful, and that has helped me, Neely!
Beautiful post and a wonderful reminder! You have some beautiful quotes here. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We spent a few days at a condo in Destin with my parents and just had a perfect end to the week watching my UCF Knights finish their undefeated season with a win!!
It seems like you had a wonderful time, Stephanie.
I agree with looking back at our blessings to find joy. I remind myself how grateful I am for this opportunity everyday! So Blessed!
Stay blessed, Joshua!
Thats true, its like when you look at what other have, you will think, you have nothing. Good read, thank you for sharing this :).
Thank you, Jack!
I think the Oprah Winfrey quote is my favorite. Hope you had a wonderful thanksgiving.
Thank you, Angela!
I am so thankful for all the blessings in my life. I try to always keep that gratitude at hand, even when I face difficulties or obstacles, as it truly does make a difference.
Stay blessed, Jessica!
Great post. I was just talking about this the other day, so important to be grateful xx
You are so right! We ALWAYS have so much to be thankful for! I spent this Thanksgiving at my in-laws’, far from home, sicker than a dog and wishing I could be curled up in my own bed, sleeping more than I was awake, and with zero appetite/nauseous half the time. So I focused on being thankful for my hubby and girls, and that I neither had to host nor cook the holiday meal!
I truly hope you feel better, Flossie, sending you blessings and positive energy.
What a lovely way to remind us of what really counts! Being grateful for what we have, what we are, is so important!
So true, Nati!
I love listening to Oprah and her quote is just it: ‘Be thankful for what you have, you will end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never ever have enough.’
I choose to consciously live with that attitude of gratitude.
Same for me, Dalene, I choose to live a life of gratitude and I am grateful for every step, every challenge that I overcome, and rejoice all the simple blessings.
