Could be there's a toast or two. Am I right?
Toasts are great -- and they can start the festivities off with a flair or add something more to the meal. But what to say, besides "Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!" or "Okay, Let's Eat!"
Here's are a few from the collections at Thanksgiving.com and CountryLiving.com that you might enjoy reciting tomorrow (check out the sites for their full lists):
- “For each new morning with its light. For rest and shelter of the night. For health and food, for love and friends. For everything Thy goodness sends.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
- “Remember God’s bounty in the year. String the pearls of His favor. Hide the dark parts, except so far as they are breaking out in light! Give this one day to thanks, to joy, to gratitude!” – Henry Ward Beecher
- "Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings." - William Arthur Ward
- "We can only be said to be alive in those moment when our hearts are conscious of our treasures." -- Thorton Wilder
... and please have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday, Dear Reader!
