Happy Monday Quotes #38: Thankfulness

This week, I’m going for the obvious theme with Monday’s quotes. Last year for Thanksgiving week, I offered up some quotes about gratitude, so I suppose this post isn’t really that much different. This past year has been beyond challenging for me, full of all sorts of difficult, heartbreaking events, negativity and battles (and even some wars) of all varieties. But it has also been brimming with moments of absolute love, surprises and delight.

 

I don’t necessarily see January 1 as the true “new year.” For me, the year turns over the week of Thanksgiving, when I always take a few minutes to take stock and appreciate the love, joy and hope that is always in my life, even if I can’t always actively feel it. I really do feel so grateful, especially for those few, rare favorite kindreds that help keep me standing. (So, if I have been remiss and have not said thank you in a while, this one’s for you.)

 

“Gratitude is an overflow of the pleasure filling your soul.” — Raheel Farooq

 

“And thank you for saying all of that, and for loving me, for you haven’t gone unloved, or unadmired, yourself.” — V.C. Andrews (from Flowers in the Attic)

 

“Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” — Marcel Proust 

 

“Rest and be thankful.” — William Wordsworth
