For flowers that bloom about our feet;
For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet;       
For song of bird, and hum of bee;
For all things fair we hear or see,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee!
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has plenty; not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some. - Charles Dickens

7.   Thanksgiving is about Connection
Thanksgiving is the holiday of peace, the celebration of work and the simple life... a true folk-festival that speaks the poetry of the turn of the seasons, the beauty of seedtime and harvest, the ripe product of the year - and the deep, deep connection of all these things with God. ~Ray Stannard Baker (David Grayson)
  Thanksgiving is the time to reunion, recharging, re-imagining and revitalizing, it's the season not only for food, but also for thinking.
