Our thanksgiving today should include those things which we take for granted. - Betty Fuhrman

In every thing give thanks. - The Bible, 1 Thessalonians 5:18 KJV

Thanksgiving speaks in clear, crisp tones of forgotten terms, like integrity - bravery - respect - freedom - discipline - sacrifice - godliness. - Charles R. Swindoll

So once in every year we throng   Upon a day apart,  To praise the Lord with feast and song   In thankfulness of heart. - Arthur Guiterman

Heap high the board with plenteous cheer, and gather to the feast, And toast the sturdy Pilgrim band whose courage never ceased.  Give praise to that All-Gracious One by whom their steps were led, And thanks unto the harvest's Lord who sends our "daily bread. - Alice Williams Brotherton (from 'The First Thanksgiving Day')

Ah! on Thanksgiving day, when from East and from West, From North and South, come the pilgrim and guest, When the gray-haired New Englander sees round his board  The old broken links of affection restored, When the care-wearied man seeks his mother once more, And the worn matron smiles where the girl smiled before.  What moistens the lips and what brightens the eye?  What calls back the past, like the rich pumkin pie? - Whittier, from "The Pumpkin"
