happy thanksgiving! if you're bored between eatings, read living in thanksgiving daily by joseph b. wirthlin. it will put everything into perspective today. and it's wonderful.

"gratitude is a mark of a noble soul and a refined character. we like to be around those who are grateful. they tend to brighten all around them. they make others feel better about themselves. they tend to be more humble, more joyful, more likable ... gratitude turns a meal into a feast and drudgery into delight. it softens our grief and heightens our pleasure. it turns the simple and common into the memorable and transcendent. it forges bonds of love and fosters loyalty and admiration."
joseph b. wirthlin
