Be Thankful.

“Do not indulge in dreams of having what you have not, but reckon up the chief of the blessings you do possess, and then thankfully remember how you would crave for them if they were not yours.” ― Marcus Aurelius

Well chosen words; and yes I am thankful for many things, as am certain you are too!

In my journal, I have a page just for recording what I am thankful for. Keeps me centered. Lovely photo and Randy, I hope that you have a blessed and wonderful Thanksgiving Day.

For some reason this photo and your comments (and the quotes) remind me of what a friend of mine said years ago: We must stop being so needy and so needful of things.

That makes sense as so often we fail to see the beauty right in front of us and fail to understand that when it comes to possessions, more is not necessarily better.

I love that quote. Happy Thanksgiving Randy.

Jack said...

That is a really good thought. We seem to have transformed the day into turkey and shopping and football. (And I am in favor of two out of three!) But we sometimes give little thought to being thankful. Nice reminder.

That's a great quote Randy. We do take things for granted a lot of the time don't we?
