#IAmGratefulFor Quotes : An optimist is a person who starts a new diet on Thanksgiving Day!
A few years ago, I started a fun Thanksgiving tradition! I asked those who would be celebrating with us to email me their favorite Thanksgiving quote a few days prior to the festivities, giving me to time to get my creative juices in gear! Once received, using a celebratory font, I printed them out and placed one quote with each place setting. When we sat down to dine, we read the quotes aloud and guessed who they belonged to!!! What fun! Lots of belly laughs, which not only counts as exercise, but it also added to our feelings of gratitude. Share your favorite Thanksgiving Quotes! #IAmThankfulFor
