If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough. — Meister Eckhart
In this week of Thanksgiving, we count each person who is a part of this community as a blessing. We hope you know that you are valued and appreciated each and every day.
If you are looking for a simple ritual to expand the appreciation and grace at your Thanksgiving gathering, you may want to print a quote to put at each place setting and read aloud. Here are a few examples:
“Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” — Marcel Proust
“Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.” — Eckhart Tolle
“Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude.” — A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
“In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it’s wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices.” — Elizabeth Gilbert
“Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayer. And let faith be the bridge you build to overcome evil and welcome good.” — Maya Angelou
“To speak Gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact Gratitude is generous and noble, but to live Gratitude is to touch Heaven.” — Johannes Gaertner
“Being Thankful is the law of increase.” — J. Martin Kohe
“He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has.” — Epictetus
Wishing everyone a very happy holiday season!
