    #2 is my favourite one because Thanksgiving is when all of our family members can get together.

  • Valerie said:

    #1 is so perfect! I like that one the best!

  • Minna said:

    I like #3 the most!

  • Shannon said:

    #1 is my favourite because for all of the quotes that we can think of, they mean nothing if we don’t put the wise words into action.

  • Kristi said:

    They are all very good but I will have to go with #1 for sure; for our actions speak louder than our words and sometimes by not saying anything and just doing something will mean more to someone. Haven’t you ever had a good friend that was there for you when you were the downest of downs and all they did was to sit by you, let you put your head on their shoulders, cry and then hand you a kleenex…to me that would mean way more than a “you’ll get through this or he’s a jerk for letting you go”…you get the point!!

  • Lori said:

    I think it is extremely important to be gracious in your life. Number three rings true with me.

    Gratitude is something that should be celebrated daily, not just on Thanksgiving (;

  • Carly said:

    I like # 5. When we almost lost our Newborn son in May, I am was and I am thankful for every blessing, prayer or thought that people sent our way. This thanks giving I was thankful for being a family of 4 when just a few shorts months ago we were not sure if Jackson would live <3 He is a blessing and I am thank-ful for him each and everyday for fighting so hard to stay alive.
