From History of Science Professor, author, and fellow cancer survivor Deborah Harkness

"Gratitude is not a word for this day, or any other single day on the calendar.
Gratitude is a state of being.
Those who live in a state of gratitude are aware of the abundance in their lives--health, happiness, love, freedom, clean air and water, food. It is when we are truly grateful for all we have that we can share our abundance with those who are ill, sad, alone, afraid, impoverished, and hungry. It is this generosity of spirit--to give to those who are are not blessed as we are--that holds the greatest magic of all: the power to change the world for the better.
Happy Thanksgiving. May you live in a state of gratitude today and every day. Thank you for being part of my life, and making me a part of yours."
