I suspect you are in the same place I am: weary of political posturing, ads for health care schemes, and the need to wear masks. If you are not, then wonderful! But I personally have found the need to go deep into the gratitude mode.
To help with that, below are ten quotes I found that soothed my soul in this season. Many I have posted daily on my Maison Steinbuchel Facebook page along with random photos from around our historic home. I would love it if you would “like” and share this page. Spread the gratitude around. We all need it!
“It’s a funny thing about life, once you begin to take note of the things you are grateful for, you begin to lose sight of the things that you lack.”
“He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has.”
“Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity…it makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”
“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.”
“No duty is more urgent than giving thanks.”
“I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.”
“For my part, I am almost contented just now, and very thankful. Gratitude is a divine emotion: it fills the heart, but not to bursting; it warms it, but not to fever.”
“Got no checkbooks, got no banks, still I’d like to express my thanks. I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night.”
“When eating fruit, remember the one who planted the tree.”
“When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself.”
