It's time to give thanks

If we're being totally real, the origins of Thanksgiving are shady at best. However, we can really get behind the holiday that it has turned into. Nowadays, it's less about pilgrims, and the focus is on coming together with loved ones to stuff ourselves silly and express our gratitude for all the amazing blessings we have in our lives. Thanksgiving is all about the warm fuzzies. The food, the wine, cozy sweaters — when you think of Thanksgiving, you think of home.

And when we gather with friends and relatives, the vibes of thanks always hang in the air, but we don't always know how to articulate how we feel. But that's OK, because there are plenty of people out there who are totally capable of articulating our grateful feelings for us.  

These Thanksgiving quotes are perfect to read around the dinner table so everyone around you can feel the love.
