To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is generous and noble, but to live gratitude is to touch Heaven.

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.

Thou hast given so much to me,
Give one thing more, - a grateful heart;
Not thankful when it pleaseth me,
As if Thy blessings had spare days,
But such a heart whose pulse may be Thy praise.
~George Herbert

Thanksgiving Day comes, by statute, once a year; to the honest man it comes as frequently as the heart of gratitude will allow.

There are so many things for which to be thankful. Here are a few...

My husband and daughter
My two grandma's, both in their late 80's
My best friend
My house and yard
My treadmill and stationary bike

I'm also thankful for all my SparkBuddies who have helped me to lose 65 pounds since February. You all are so inspiring!

This is an easy one, but an important one.
I want everyone to give me five things they are thankful for. It's so easy to see where we want to be, what we want to look like, what we don't have...that we miss what wonderful progress we've made, the many blessings we have. Research has actually proved that being thankful makes you feel healthy. (and who dosen't want that!!)

So Lets get a jump on thanksgiving and see all the sonder things that are around us and give thanks for them!
