I am thankful for my wife and kids. I had a rough upbringing and was in some trouble growing up. I met my wife and changed my life. She gave me a reason to believe in myself again. She made me respect life and love. She Gave me three beautiful kids they are the reason why I live and breath and work hard just for them. I don't want anything extra this year. I am thankful and grateful for my family I already have!

The Thanksgiving I am most thankful for is the one right after I lost my dad. Family friends included my family and I in their Thanksgiving plans so we wouldn't be so lonely! It was so thoughtful of them and we had a blast!

I am most thankful for my children and my family. I'm also thankful that we've always made a point of celebrating Thanksgiving and taking that time together as a family. My husband passed away a few years ago and I'm glad that we have those wonderful Thanksgiving memories to look back on. And I'm thankful for turkey, stuffing and cranberries.

Can I delete my last comment? I answered wrong. Anyway, the Thanksgiving I'm most thankful for is 1990. My grandpa was in the hospital following minor surgery, so the family was all there with my Grandma that year. Grandpa ended up dying the day after Thanksgiving. I'm thankful my Grandma had the rest of her loved ones right there for her.

This Thanksgiving, I am thankful to have healthy, natural food options on the Thanksgiving table. The holidays seem to always be associated with over-indulging and libation but this year, I'm grateful to be able to provide healthy options for me and my family.

I am most thankful for the opportunity to spend this upcoming Thanksgiving with my family. For the past two Thanksgivings I was a Peace Corps volunteer in Mongolia. A country in central Asia that needless to say does not celebrate American Thanksgiving. All us Peace Corps volunteers got together and had a makeshift Thanksgiving but it was not the same as a down-home traditional Thanksgiving with family. I come from a large Mississippi Family that revels in all the decadent foods of Thanksgiving and appreciates the quality time we get to spend together on T-Giving. I literally can't wait to walk into my Mama's kitchen and smell her sweet potato casserole and cornbread stuffing cooking.

I am most thankful that I have all of my family members to share thanksgiving together. My little girl is finally old enough to start learning the real reason for Thanksgiving and being thankful for all our blessings.

This year I am thankful for the people I have met through a new position that I have begun. I am an academic and social intervention tutor working with inner city students who have been given a choice to attend my town's suburban high school. I have learned more from these students who catch a city bus to the school before 6am daily and dazzle me with their resilance, big hearts and storys of home, some from Jamaica, some from puerto rico, some lifelong recidents of the poorest neighborhoods in Hartford. They have accepted me and trust me and come to me with their worries and woes as well as their triumphs. I am thankful for them and hope I can have a positive influence on their lives. I am so proud of them all!

I'm most thankful for the fact that I'm doing just what I want to be doing - getting a PhD in English - in a gorgeous place (Santa Barbara) with some of the best people I've ever known. I'm thankful every day that I've got it so good.

I think that I am most Thankful for Thanksgiving last year. It was the first one I have not had with my family and it was really hard. I am so grateful that we had family here to go to on the day and I am thankful that both my dad and father in law are here - both are cancer survivors.Being together means so much more to us now.

I am so thankful for my friends and family. I also became a Vegan this year and am thankful that I am on the road to living the best life I can possibly live. Last year my 72 year old mother suffered a heart attack in January and had a quadruple bypass in May. I am thankful that she is alive and is letting me help her change her health. I am also thankful for God first and foremost.

I am thankful for my family and friends. It has been a very tough year and I don't know how I would have gotten through it without them. I'm very grateful for my parents being able to send me to the college of my choice where I am earning a fantastic education.

I can say without a doubt that the the Thanksgiving I'm most thankful for was in 2004 it was one of the few times it actualy snowed in New Orleans. My sister had taken on the task of cooking the dinner and every one showed up and we ate and ate and ate until we could no longer eat. Later we all went outside and had a snowball fight it was the perfect end to a perfect day. I will forever remember that Thanksgiving because it was the last one we had with our mother she passed away the folowing March. I will always hold that last Thanksgiving with my mom dear to my heart it tought me to appreciate all the time i get to spend with my family and friends no matter how short the time maybe weather its 30 minutes or hours on end just be thankful for the time we get to share.

So many wonderful Thanksgivings....My favorite one will be this one. My oldest daughter has switched jobs and will now have the day off. Before we had to do a quick meal just so we could all see each other. This year, we get to enjoy the whole family together, including my five wonderful grandchildren, ages 4 to 7 months! What a blessing for all of us!

To sum it up it would only take a two words "My Family"! My family has always been close but after loosing my mother this year just days after she turned 50 I have realized even more how precious life truly is and that we have to treasure every moment we have now. I have a two year old daughter and three year old son that I can't imagine life without!

I am most thankful for having my sanity! Surely it almost sounds comedic and obnoxious, yet it's the plain truth. Amongst all my friends in my industry, I have been unemployed the longest - a little over three years. I'm fortunate and thankful for the resources I have so cautiously tried to maintain. Also, I serve as the sounding board and voice of reason - the go to person. So many years of hard work and barely taking time off to travel - I made a journey to visit places and friends around the country when possible this year....cheap travel has been my sanity, while maintaining a positive upbeat attitude and nursing a bad Achilles injury in these trying times. Once it's back to work (hopefully sooner than later), who knows if I'll ever have the opportunity to do this again. Getting back to work would be the greatest gift as I'm about to turn 40 (and fabulous)!

I am thankful for a wonderful, loving, and supportive parents along with a kind hearted brother. I can call on my family when ever help is needed and they are always by my side. I am thankful to everything my parents have taught and to my grandmother and mother who have shown me how to be strong and courageous. I am thankful to my boyfriend who has opened up my mind and heart to new experiences. I am thankful to everyone who has touched my life in some way.

When my daughter was 10 her sperm provider (sorry not worthy of title dad) abandoned us leaving me with a house that had an eviction notice and an empty bank account thanksgiving week! My daughter was spending the holiday with my parents so she didn't know I had to find a new place on Wednesday so I could move by black Friday! Thanksgiving morning I was having a nice little pity party bit for some reason I felt moved to help deliver thanksgiving meals to shutins! Needless to say after spending the day help those who really needed it, my problems no longer seemed so bad! I think of that week a lot and how far I've come! That was 18 years ago! Blessings!
