“Thanksgiving and Sunday Thoughts”

123autumnleaves_branch-849x340And so the Thanksgiving weekend comes to an end today and Christmas is on the way.  Let us all remember as we head into the holiday season that Thanksgiving and Christmas are not just one-day holidays, and that the attitudes that these holidays should inspire, are ones of gratefulness, gratitude, and kindness that should be present the whole year and every year afterwards.

“I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual.”

–Henry David Thoreau

“Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action.”

–W.J. Cameron

“He who thanks but with the lips
Thanks but in part;
The full, the true Thanksgiving
Comes from the heart.”
–J.A. Shedd

“Thanksgiving was never meant to be shut up in a single day.”

–Robert Caspar Lintner

“Our modern celebration of Thanksgiving can be traced back to the early 17th century. Upon arriving in Plymouth, at the culmination of months of testing travel that resulted in death and disease, the Pilgrims continued to face great challenges. An indigenous people, the Wampanoag, helped them adjust to their new home, teaching them critical survival techniques and important crop cultivation methods. After securing a bountiful harvest, the settlers and Wampanoag joined in fellowship for a shared dinner to celebrate powerful traditions that are still observed at Thanksgiving today: lifting one another up, enjoying time with those around us, and appreciating all that we have.”

–President Barack Obama
