If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, "thank you," that would suffice.  ~Meister Eckhart

In the spirit of the season of Thanksgiving we are curious about what you are THANKFUL for.

We have so much to be thankful for in our lives from our freedom to many small things we take for granted in our every day life.   Life goes by so fast sometimes without a shred of thankfulness.  In a Me, Me, Me world and how life affects me; how many times, outside of Thanksgiving, do we sit back and truly evaluate all the moments and things in life that we should truly be thankful for.

Thanksgiving was never meant to be shut up in a single day.  ~Robert Caspar Lintner

Lintner says it best, Thanksgiving is the obvious day to express words of thanks but do our actions represent that day in and day out through the year?  Thanksgiving is definitely the time we should all reflect and give thanks but throughout the year do not forget to live and speak the same sentiments to those things you are truly thankful for!
