I’m surprised at how many people don’t say these two little words. I try to say them even for the smallest things in life. I want people to know I appreciate something they have done and that I don’t take their actions for granted.

Have you ever been truly elated about something being a part of your life? It doesn’t have to be a material possession, but maybe a person or even the adoration of someone else. When I feel blue, I try to think of all I have to be thankful for and this usually cheers me up in no time at all. I’m happiest when I think about all the “treasures” in my life.

I’ve noticed that people who are grateful for what they have are usually very relaxed individuals. They also don’t tend to get stressed-out by much at all. These people take life in stride and enjoy everything that comes their way. They find at least a bit of good in everything.

I’m always grateful for the people who make me happy. I can’t imagine life without them! My husband makes me laugh at least a few times each day, so I guess he’d be considered the head gardener in this quote!

I know some people who say the words and don’t place any meaning at all behind them. A few people are able to put on a sincere face without meaning it, but most can’t hide their lack of sincerity. People who are truly thankful are able to show it with their actions, expressions, and their entire being.

Being happy with what you have can be hard at times. If you can be grateful for even the smallest things in life, you’ll find life to be much more fulfilling. Buying lots of things and getting to travel can make people happy as well, but I don’t think these two things are the only ones that can make a person feel fulfilled.

I have to agree with this one completely. Being grateful for something makes me happy, not depressed. If I’m feeling blue and think about what I’m grateful for, then I cheer up in no time at all, which proves this quote to be very true indeed!

Family is always on my mind during the holidays and Thanksgiving is no exception. This is a time for gathering with friends and family and expressing thankfulness for not only each person in your life, but also for the people who have been a part of your life in the past.

This quote makes me think of Scrooge and the Grinch. Neither of these two characters was thankful for anything, just grouchy and mean. It seems that once they quit thinking about themselves they became more aware of those around them. They actually cared about someone other than themselves and changed their lives completely.

I thought of another quote about practicing what you preach when I read this quote by JFK. This also falls along the lines of a previous quote that referred to showing how thankful you were and not just saying the words.

I always try to find the good in everything, which can be extremely difficult at times. These 10 beautiful Thanksgiving quotes are just a few of the many that have been uttered over the centuries. Is there a thanksgiving quote that you’ve come across recently or in the past that made an impression on you? Why do you think this quote was such a special one to you?
