10 quotes/for Thanks.

As November begins, I am reminded that it is the month for reflecting and gratitude and giving thanks. Even though Thanksgiving is on the 26th this year, we should be grateful all year round. And as we stuff ourselves with turkey, mashed potatoes, and gravy this month, don’t forget all the things to be thankful for.

Here are some quotes to think about:
