Thanksgiving has long been one of my favorite holidays. This year’s was especially meaningful, spent with extended family and friends near Washington, DC., after the small gatherings of 2020 when air travel was highly discouraged. This Thanksgiving I was reminded of my many blessings. As Thanksgiving weekend is fleeting, we’d like to share some of our favorite quotes that prompt us to pause, reflect and express gratitude, whatever the time of year.

“Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.” – Eckhart Tolle
