In America we have a way of taking any holiday and making it about food and fun. Now I have nothing against food and fun, especially if you throw in some family, but there is more to most holidays than that. We are coming up on Thanksgiving this month and we may give lip service to the idea of being thankful but how many of us will really give any serious thought or time to actually being thankful?
So with that in mind I thought I would share some inspiring quotes on the topic and just maybe you will get inspired to take some time over the next few weeks to actually be thankful.
