Fall is here and after a busy summer it's always nice to finally sit down & relax a bit. The weather is cooler, the days are shorter and in just a few weeks we will be enjoying a wonderful Thanksgiving meal.
It's also a great time to be thankful and express our gratitude to family & friends! Why not take a moment this month and send your family & friends a little note of gratitude? Pull out those supplies, let your kids join in and just write a simple, heartfelt note thanking someone. Let them know how thankful you are that they are in your life!
Here's some great quotes to motivate you, along with some examples of a few easy cards that you can do.
Silent gratitude isn't much use to anyone. ~G.B. Stern
We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures. ~Thornton Wilder
Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action. ~W.J. Cameron
He who thanks but with the lips Thanks but in part; The full, the true Thanksgiving Comes from the heart. ~J.A. Shedd
Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it. ~William Arthur Ward
