I am so pleased to be co-hosting Quote Me Thursday with Brenda from DailyMayo.com. This week’s topic, Gratitude and Thankfulness is especially near and dear to me because I try to find the silver lining in any cloud that I come across. I do not thrive on “being down in the dumps” so I try to greet each day with a smile and a celebration of my blessings.
Here are some of the quotes that I keep above my desk in my office to keep me focused on the good things in life.
“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
And some others……
“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” ― John F. Kennedy
“The thankful receiver bears a plentiful harvest.” —William Blake
“Do not indulge in dreams of having what you have not, but reckon up the chief of the blessings you do possess, and then thankfully remember how you would crave for them if they were not yours.” ― Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
“Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude.” ― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

This Week’s Post Features
I love to be scared. I hate to be scared. I have a love/hate relationship with being scared. That being said, my post I want to feature is The Best Scary Books to Read in October. Out of the 50 scariest books of all time, I’ve had the dubious pleasure of reading nearly half of them.
I also was fortunate enough to run into this post from Writing Tips Wednesday: Tips for Writing Horror from 5 Horror Masters. I’m elbows deep in the second book in my zombie apocalypse (with a healthy dose of romance) series that this was right on the money for me.
