Preparation for Thanksgiving Day

Hope you enjoy these quotes from Amy Carroll’s blog:

"On Thanksgiving Day we acknowledge our dependence."
--William Jennings Bryan

"The Pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts. No Americans have been more impoverished than these who, nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving."
--H.U. Hestermayer

"Thanksgiving Day is a jewel, to set in the hearts of honest men [& women]; but be careful that you do not take the day, and leave out the gratitude."
--E.P. Powell

"What we're really talking about is a wonderful day set aside on the fourth Thursday of November when no one diets. I mean, why else would they call it Thanksgiving?"
--Erma Bombeck

One thing I’m thankful for is that this day has not been commercialized. In these anxious times, it is worthwhile to stop and remember the many blessings that we do have.

I'm thankful it's not commercialized either! Most every other holiday is.
