Thursday Thinking and Inking - Thankful

All Aboard the Meme Express – Thursday, November 19, 2009


Artist Unknown

One week from today, Americans will celebrate Thanksgiving. Perhaps this offers a reminder for all of us to consider the blessings we enjoy, no matter where we live.

Here’s today’s quotation for Thursday Thinking and Inking at Meme Express.

Keep your eyes open to your mercies.

The man who forgets to be thankful

has fallen asleep in life.
Robert Louis Stevenson

Scottish Writer

(1850 – 1894)

Each Thursday, we will feature a quotation as inspiration for that day’s prompt.

The Meme Express for today is simple and appreciative:


For what are you most thankful?
