Thanksgiving Week

As the saying goes, "Write your troubles in dust, and your blessings in marble."
QUOTE of the WEEK: "Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving." W.T. Purkiser
POEM for YOUR WEEK ThanksgivingBy Author Unknown
We are thankful for the careThat did not come to try us;The burden that we did not bear,The trouble that passed by us;The task we did not fail to do,The hurt we did not cherish;The friend who did not prove untrue, The joy that did not perish.
We are thankful for the blinding stormThat did not lose it swelling;And for the sudden blight of harmThat came not nigh our dwelling.
We are thankful for the dart unsped,The bitter word unspoken,The grave unmade, the tear unshed,The heart-tie still unbroken.
QUOTES for YOUR WEEK:"When asked if my cup is half-full or half-empty my only response is that I am thankful I have a cup." Sam Lefkowitz
"Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action." W. J. Cameron
