I'm most thankful for my friends and family. The last 5 years have been very hard on all of us, but by opening up and sharing our thoughts and feelings, we have provided each other with the support and love necessary to get through the hard times and really enjoy the good times :-)

I am most thankful for every Thanksgiving... because I have the blessing of spending time with my loving family. I cannot wait to spend another one with them this year! <3 What a lovely post by the way- you're right- concentrating on gratitude is a great way to change your attitude! :)

I am thankful for not only to have friends and family but being able to wake up and do something for someone else. I started an environmental club on campus and we go out around my school and do clean ups and personally that is the way I know how to give back to the community and help education people about environmental issues. I am happy to give back the best way I can for the holiday season for the greater community

I'm most thankful for the holidays celebrated throughout my childhood. Of the seven people I shared them with, only two remain alive. As I sit here and reflect on the life I'm bringing into the world at the beginning of next year, I know that the memories from the past will help fuel future holiday celebrations with my growing family.

I am most thankful for re-discovering the way nature intended us to eat through Whole Foods. My energy is way up and my outlook on life has changed. I can confidently say that I enjoy eating now more than ever before, even though I'm also eating healthier than ever before!

I'm most thankful for my friends. I live far away from my family and my friends have become like a second family, so even when I'm away during holidays, I'm never alone.

The thanksgiving I'm most thankful for is the one we're about to have. The last 5 years have been very hard on my friends, family, and myself, but by opening up and sharing our thoughts and feelings, we have provided each other with the support and love necessary to get through the hard times and really enjoy the good times. Our luck is turning, things are looking up, and this thanksgiving will be the start of a new chapter in life.

I am so grateful for my 2 year old niece. I never knew how much love could fill my heart and then I hear her shouting "Auntie! Auntie! Auntie!" as I come up the walkway. This will be the first Thanksgiving in years that my whole family will be under one roof...as a Respiratory Therapist, I usually work holidays. Now I'll get to relax with my family all day!

I am truly thankful for having the opportunity to just awake each and every morning, to see my kids, my mother, my pets and just correct any mistakes I may have made in the past. I'm thankful to wake up and take advantage of the small things in life so many others take for granted or just don't appreciate.

I am most thankful for my husband. He has spent the last two years lifting me up so that I may live up to the potential he sees in me. I am so appreciative of the support he provides (both emotional and financial while I pursue a new career in fitness), as well as touched by the thankfulness he expresses to me each day in a note as I unpack the containers from his lunch bag.

I'm most thankful for being able to spend this Thanksgiving with my cousin and his new wife. While he has been battling cancer, he has been amazingly optimistic and positive. I take courage from his strength, and am grateful for having such a role model in my life.

I am most thankful for the Thanksgiving of 2008 when both sets of grandparents were able to attend. It was great to have the whole family together and we had the most delicious pumpkin pies.

I'm most thankful for being alive in these exciting transformative times. I am blessed to have a healthy body to navigate through this dimension, I am so thankful to have mental clarity to do well for others. I've always been instilled at an early age the idea of universal responsibility, I believe if what I am doing is not making others better, than I am wasting my time. I created RawYouth.org so I can help others achieve optimal health. I am thankful for my family, support, and a shelter over my head.I am thankful for conscious companies like Whole Foods that brings optimal nutrition into the tummies or billions of people! Thank you for doing what you do! Cheers, CHARLES RawYouth.org

Coming from a large family, 8 of us in all, it is not always easy to get everyone together. I am thankful for the excuse Thanksgiving gives us to cancel any other plans, ignore work for the day, and get together. This year we decided to do Thanksgiving on Saturday to give the married folks a chance to see the other half of their families on Thursday. So even though we won't be celebrating in the traditional way, the spirit of Thanksgiving is what brings us together, and we are all thankful for that!

The year I went vegan. I was so thankful to have family willing to let me cook tofu and side dishes of my own - as well as willing to try them with me. Instead of the pies and cakes, my aunt even went to whole foods and brought everyone a vegan cupcake. So thankful to have an open minded and fun family.

The Thanksgiving I'm most thankful for is last year's Thanksgiving. My sister, brother-in-law and nephews moved from MD to TX and were too far away for my mom and I to visit them for the holiday, since we were also flying down for Christmas. As my mom and I decided what to do for Thanksgiving (just the two of us), I said that I would make the dinner. Now at my then 27 years of age, I was a pretty good cook, and had prepared a Thanksgiving meal before...but not for my mother. My mom came to my place, which I had decorated, and I cooked almost the complete meal myself (she made the pies and rolls), and we just had a fantastic time together...just the two of us. I love my sister and nephews dearly, and miss them EVERy holiday I'm not with them, but I felt to blessed to be able to cook for my Mom that Thanksgiving and for the time that we had together. I'll always remember it.

I have just returned from Haiti and am very Thankful for clean water, food to eat, a local economy and the fact that my daughter has opportunities that so many children never will. I am also Thankful that I am in a position to help some of the children in Haiti.

I'm thankful that I never have to worry about having a roof over my head or food in my belly. I may complain about having to pay for my own health insurance or having to pay for student loans, but I still consider myself lucky to never have to worry about my basic needs.
