Thursday Thankful List

T-H-U-R-S-D-A-Y! How has your week been? My weekend was a mix of fun and relaxing and every day this week has stayed busy. Monday I watched the Giants game {and now we’re in the World Series! Woo hoo!}, Tuesday I had a hair appointment {back to red!} and yesterday I went to see the Jukebox the Ghost show with the lovely Jenna. I have no set plans for this weekend except trying to beat this cold I have, watching the Giants and pretending to throw together some sort of Halloween costume. Who knows about that last one.

You probably know I’m a sucker for good quotes…I tend to always be looking them up and then writing and rewriting them all over. I found a few special ones that I wanted to share about thankfulness and gratitude. Enjoy!

You say grace before meals. All right. But I say grace before the concert and the opera, and grace before the play and pantomime, and grace before I open a book, and grace before sketching, painting, swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing and grace before I dip the pen in the ink. — G. K. Chesterton

He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has. — Epictetus

Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings. — William Arthur Ward

Whatever our individual troubles and challenges may be, it’s important to pause every now and then to appreciate all that we have, on every level. We need to literally “count our blessings,” give thanks for them, allow ourselves to enjoy them, and relish the experience of prosperity we already have. — Shakti Gawain

Feeling grateful or appreciative of someone or something in your life actually attracts more of the things that you appreciate and value into your life. — Christiane Northrup

“Gratitude should not be just a reaction to getting what you want, but an all-the-time gratitude, the kind where you notice the little things and where you constantly look for the good, even in unpleasant situations. Start bringing gratitude to your experiences, instead of waiting for a positive experience in order to feel grateful.” — Marelisa Fábrega
