With a daughter working in retail at a major store, and fellow employees now referring to Thanksgiving as 'Gray Thursday', she and I have pondered what should be--used to be--the focus of America's time-honored holiday. What does Thanksgiving mean to you? I've gathered some fitting quotes and reflections on this historic day.
"O Lord that lends me life,
Lend me a heart replete with thankfulness."
"On Thanksgiving Day we acknowledge our dependence." ~William Jennings Bryan
"Give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way." ~Native American Saying
"An optimist is a person who starts a new diet on Thanksgiving Day." ~Irv Kupcinet
