My mom taught us to think of what we were thankful for on thanksgiving…giving thanks. I give thanks that I still have my mom and dad, my dog, my home, and for all of you and for all the support you have given me.
I hope you have a nice day too. Most of all, I give thanks for the lord in my life and for being allowed to express this in our country.

I am a few days late to the discussion, but I am thankful for so much! One of my friends started a daily "Today I am thankful for…" on Facebook a couple weeks before Thanksgiving. I did that everyday, and it was truly wonderful to voice the things I am thankful for…the things we take for granted everyday of our lives. Some of the things I am thankful for are, my daughter, my family, my friends, my country, my job,my home, my dog, and my health. I place my health on my list because I know it could be much worse than it is even though I do have diabetes and some other issues.

I am thankful for my son. I have PCOS and it took 10 months to conceive him then I was on bedrest most of my pregnancy..then diagnosed with gestational diabetes amongst quite a few other issues. BUT i would go thru it all again for my little guy. I am soo thankful I was finally able to get pregnant and have he is almost 8 months old! I can't believe it! I still can't believe he is here with us.

I am also thankful for my husband. He is a U.S. Sailor. This was the first Thanksgiving we have been able to spend as a married couple because he was deployed last year. I am thankful, and lucky enough, to have him as my husband and father of my child.

I am thankful for my husband and son. I am thankful my late father married my step-mom so I have a mother in my life and more siblings and their family. I am thankful for my in-laws, and friends. I am thankful for the invention of the internet that opens us to places like this with friends like you, and the ability to seek answers. I am thankful to be living in America, protected by the best military with courageous men and women that allow us to be free.
