In a week devoted to thanksgiving, I have much to be grateful for. Oddly enough, one of the things I’m grateful for is the fact that I took some “offline” time. After Tuesday, I didn’t blog, Twitter or Facebook. I’m ready to dive back in now, but it was nice to just live in the physical world for a while. I’m sure I’ll do that again around Christmas, and maybe for a few days every month just for a “cleanse” so to speak. With me, the allure of reading blogs, Twitter, etc., while immensely educational in a lot of ways, can also be a bit addictive. Nice to get some balance back.
Quotes on Gratitude
“Nothing purchased can come close to the renewed sense of gratitude for having family and friends.” — Courtland Milloy
“I do not think of all the misery, but of the glory that remains. Go outside into the fields, nature and the sun, go out and seek happiness in yourself and in God. Think of the beauty that again and again discharges itself within and without you and be happy.” — Anne Frank
“Heap high the board with plenteous cheer and gather to the feast, And toast the sturdy Pilgrim band whose courage never ceased.” — Alice W. Brotherton
