Table of ContentsSince the main events of November are Thanksgiving and Veterans Day, our focus this issue will be on counting our blessings, appreciation for all that we have, and gratitude to our Veterans have sacrificed for our country. We are truly blessed.

1. No one is more cherished in this world than someone who lightens the burden of another. Thank you. ~ Unknown
Please be sure to share the poster and quote with your favorite service member or veteran to show your appreciation for all of their sacrifices they have given for our country.
The law of attraction is in harmony with this quote. By anticipating and eagerly expecting our good we hasten the process. I challenge you to test this quote out. You’ll be amazed at the results.
3. If you want to feel rich, just count all of the things you have that money can't buy. ~ Unknown
I really like this quote! True wealth is in the small things often taken for granted, such as good health, 2 arms, 2 legs, mobility, freedom, friends, and family. If we lost any one of these items we would give anything to regain back. We are blessed beyond measure.
4. Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it. ~ William Arthur Ward
Expressing gratitude expands your soul and the quality of your life. When you become aware of just how blessed you are you increase your joy.
When you let those closest to you know how much you appreciate them you nourish and solidify your relationship.
It takes so little to express your gratitude and it pays big dividends in the quality of your life and the lives of those your appreciate.
5. God has two dwellings; one in heaven, and the other in a meek and thankful heart. ~ Izaak Walton
If you want to feel the blessings of God showering your life, develop a thankful heart.
The more grateful you are, the more you have to be grateful for. An attitude of gratitude is truly a powerful force that will awaken your awareness of God’s presence and blessings in your life.
