So this is a “twofer” combined post for this holiday weekend, sharing several Christmas-related quotes from The Quote Garden. Enjoy!       “There has been only one Christmas — the rest are anniversaries.” ~W.J….

Here at Words of Encouragement…   **NOVEMBER MEANS: GRATITUDE CHALLENGE!!** On this night before Thanksgiving, do you have an attitude of gratitude or do you need an attitude adjustment?
