It is November, the month that brings us NaNoWriMo, NaBloPoMo, Movember, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday, American Thanksgiving and lots and lots of gratitude. Writer’s Quote Wednesday will focus on gratitude this month.
Words to live by not only as we pause to celebrate Thanksgiving next week but year round from the 35th President of the United States and author of Profiles in Courage. Five decades have passed since his assassination on November 22, 1963 and his words still ring true.
