“Give thanks not just on Thanksgiving Day, but every day of your life. Appreciate and never take for granted all that you have.”
– Catherine Pulsifer
It’s Thanksgiving in the U.S. today – a day when people take time out from the crazy in their lives to think about what’s really important to them; to reflect on what they’re grateful for. It’s a day filled with food and festivities, love and laughter.
Although it’s a time to count your blessings, it can be stressful and chaotic. One way to relieve the stress when the overwhelm starts to set in is to take a minute to breathe and focus on all the good in your life. As I’ve said many times, gratitude is the single most important vibration that the universe responds to. When you are grateful for what you have, the universe showers you with more reasons to be grateful.
As we kick-off the holiday season with this day dedicated to gratitude, I’m sharing some thanksgiving quotes, and one very special video. Enjoy!

“Thanksgiving Day is a good day to recommit our energies to giving thanks and just giving. ” – Amy Grant

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
