On this Thanksgiving day, I have been thankful to be alive. Time and again, my thoughts have rested with the One who has changed my life. In this life, I have been blessed with so much ~ and this night my thoughts are filled with gratitude for all I have been given, not the least of which has been the ability to feel grateful.

While trying to find the words to write a letter of thanks, I came across three quotations I felt were especially meaningful for me. They are listed below. Do you have any thoughts that moved you today?

"We can only be said to be alive
in those moments when our hearts
are conscious of our treasures."

~Thornton Wilder

"Gratitude is the memory of the heart."

~ Jean Baptiste Massieu

"I would maintain that thanks
are the highest form of thought,
and that gratitude is happiness
doubled by wonder."

~ G.K. Chesterton
