Happy Thanksgivingtide 2019!

A Season of Gratitude
There is a season and a time for everything. As the pages of our calendars turn to November, we enter the special month of thanksgiving. The earth has come alive with a vibrancy of rich sights, smells, and tastes to quicken the senses before the winter settles in. As we meditate on this beauty surrounding us, may our souls feel gratitude for the blessings in our lives.
"Thanksgiving is a joyous invitation to shower the world with love and gratitude." - Amy Leigh Mercree
"Thankfulness is the beginning of gratitude. Gratitude is the completion of thankfulness. Thankfulness may consist merely of words. Gratitude is shown in acts." -Henri Frederic Amiel
"When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around." -Willie Nelson
"Learn to be thankful for what you already have, while you pursue all that you want." -Jim Rohn
"'Thank You' is the best prayer that anyone could say. I say that one a lot. Thank you expresses extreme gratitude, humility, understanding." -Alice Walker
"Reflect upon your present blessings of which every man has plenty; not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some." -Charles Dickens
"Some people grumble that roses have thorns; I am grateful that thorns have roses." -Alphonse Karr
"Give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way." Native American saying
"None is more impoverished than the one who has no gratitude. Gratitude is a currency that we can mint for ourselves, and spend without fear of bankruptcy." -Fred De Witt Van Amburgh
"Showing gratitude is one of the simplest yet most powerful things humans can do for each other." -Randy Pausch
"Let gratitude be like the sun to your flower. Keep your face always turned toward its light." - Leah D. Schade
"Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it." - William Arthur Ward
"I am grateful for what I am and have. My Thanksgiving is perpetual." -Henry David Thoreau
"Gratitude is the sweetest thing in a seekers life - in all human life. If there is gratitude in your heart, then there will be tremendous sweetness in your eyes." -Sri Chinmoy
And when we count our blessings and ponder the gifts of thanksgiving , we always think of you. We are truly grateful for your support and encouragement as we are on the threshold of our 115th year in business. May the season of thankfulness embrace you and light your life with joy and gratitude.

"Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful." -Norman Vincent Peale
Every season has its charm, but Christmas can stand head and shoulders above the rest as the most wonderful time of the year. I asked the staff at FL Crooks & Co. to take me on their path to Christmas joy with this question: What makes/made it a merry Christmas for you? Do you have a favorite Christmas memory, tradition, gift that stands out in your memory?

While substitute teaching some years ago, a book on a teacher's desk caught my attention. (English teachers always have the most interesting books in their classrooms!) I recently came across the book again at the Clarion Free Library and noticed how many of the words and images are perfect for this time of the year as we transition from summer to autumn.
