Seven Times More Graves

I read this quote yesterday and it really made me think....

"The Pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts. No Americans have been more impoverished than these who, nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving."
 ~H.U. Westermayer

Isn't that striking? And maybe those of you who have grown up in America are familiar with the Pilgrims sufferings, but I'm from Britain and we never learnt about this at all. What a great example to remember to recognise our blessings. No matter what we are each individually going through, if we think long enough about it, we will realised how many blessings we do truly have.
