Quote – Heart’s Gratitude

“Thanksgiving is very vocal: doorbells ringing, kitchen sounds, automobiles hurrying up driveways, and in cities hasty footsteps resounding on pavements. It is also full of sounds of greeting, welcome, laughter, and reunion.

But it’s quiet during the moments when we pause to offer heart’s gratitude, not only for the blessings of the months past but for the disciplines; and above all for the ability to believe in the future, whatever we may read or hear; to believe in friends, in love, in the world itself, no matter how troubled it may be.” ~ Faith Baldwin

I always feel a sense of calm when I read the reflections of Faith Baldwin. I have three of her books and most often when I read her words I am inspired by her insight. The quote above was taken out of Evening Star, pubished in 1966.

  1. I often wonder about Thanksgiving as we don’t celebrate it. To me it seems a cauldron to mix cultures, traditions, eats, fun, happiness and thankfulness for a nation that has provided so much to so many people. ( Is that offensive ? I don’t know).
    Sometimes Thanksgiving is associated with the Turkey but that’s not it really, is it ?
    Thanksgiving stands for unity, for togetherness, for holding hands, for giving up on differences( at least for that day) and being the same, no matter what.
    Happy Thanksgiving, my dear friend.

      Thank you so much Susie. It was a great day, and you described it even better than I could. We enjoyed our day, had dinner together, played a game afterwards. It was a nice time of family and friends. Kathy
