Thanksgiving Quotes: Live Your Dash With Gratitude

“… show appreciation more and love the people in our lives like we’ve never loved before.”

The Dash Poem says to show appreciation and love people. These are simple ideas but often hard to accomplish in the everyday busyness of our lives. Thanksgiving is wonderful because it seems we all slow down on the same day, even if it is just for a few hours before all the sales start. On this one day, we are reminded to be grateful and express thankfulness. Thanksgiving gives us opportunities to gather with people that are important to us and love them well.

These Thanksgiving quotes will encourage you to slow down, remember your blessings, say thank you, and love well. And maybe we can all be reminded to be thankful and love people a little more every day, not just on Thanksgiving.
