As you gather around the table with family and friends to dig into turkey and delicious stuffing this Thanksgiving, you’ll want to take a moment to reflect on what you’re most grateful for in 2022.

We know, with so much to be thankful about, particularly each person sitting around your table; it can be hard to find the perfect words to show your gratitude.  Luckily for you, I have put together a list of inspirational and heartwarming Thanksgiving wishes you can share as part of your family’s annual Turkey Day toast or even send a quick text message to those who couldn’t join in on the festivities.

  • “Wishing you a harvest of blessings, good health, and good times
  • Thanksgiving , a joyous holiday season and healthful, Happy New Year
  • Sending you my warm wishes from home to home and from heart to heart to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving.
  • “The turkey. The sweet potatoes. The stuffing. The pumpkin pie. Is there anything else we all can agree so vehemently about? I don’t think so.” Nora Ephron

I am happy because I’m grateful. I choose to be grateful That gratitude allows me to be happy. Let our lives be full of thanks and giving.


May all of the good things of life be yours, on Thanksgiving and throughout the year.
