The Thanksgiving that I am most thankful for is Thanksgiving 2004...that Thanksgiving my Dad became cancer-free and remains that way today! Thankful for health and many more memories I get to share with my Papa.

I’m thankful for all the Thanksgivings I had with my parents who are no longer with us. My parents were at their best when they were preparing the Thanksgiving meal. My mother was a fabulous cook, and her holiday dinners were the best food I’ve ever tasted. However, there is one Thanksgiving I’m particularly thankful for and will always remember – it was the one where my dad told a Thanksgiving story. He told a story about how people didn’t have turkey for Thanksgiving because there weren’t any turkeys to buy – there were only wild turkeys. There weren’t any turkeys for Thanksgiving until people started raising turkeys. My dad had one of the first turkey farms in the early 1940s, and he had 5,000 turkeys.

I am thankful that I am getting to spend my 53rd Thanksgiving with the greatest father and mother in the world. Twenty five of us will be gathering at their house to share the day with them. We are all very lucky!

My family. The past few months have been one piece of news after another my sister was diagnosed with MS and last week my father was in a very bad car accident and was able to walk away with just a hairline fracture. All I can say is cherish every moment and at the very least be thankful for those you share with family.

I am most thankful for the opportunity to change my life by studying medicine to become a Physician Assistant. I'm also thankful for the support of my family - without them, I don't know if I would have had the gumption to travel the path I did to get here...there were some tough times! But here I am, poised to start my rotations doing what I love best, learning medicine and making a real difference in the lives of my patients.

I am thankful that I grew up in an extended family and that we all sat down to enjoy dinner. We didn't need a special holiday to gather round the table.

My Mother. When everything crumbles who is the first person you turn to? The person who is instantly going to make you laugh, cry, vent, smile and comfort? Most people would say a significant other--Wrong, mine is my mother, the one who keeps me grounded throughout all the ciaos. We sometimes forget how important our parents are when we get caught up in our own lives in this beautiful and crazy world. that we eventually feel like fools because, we finally realize that the ones who could have fixed the problem all along, had never left. I am so incredibly thankful for my mother, she is my rock. I personally believe, we all need to take a little extra time out of our day to let the ones we love most how truly thankful, we really are.

I am so thankful for my husband and my son, but maybe not for the most common reasons. My son and my husband both exist on the autism spectrum, and when my son was quite small (and we were at our wit's end) we tried the gluten-free/casein-free diet that some people with autism have found helpful. It worked incredibly well for my son. So well that my husband finally surrendered and tried it himself, but not without insisting I try it, too. To make a very long story shorter, it was through my husband and my son that I found out that I have celiac disease. In a very real way, they've helped to save me, and I feel grateful every day that I have them both.

The most thankful Thanksgiving for me was 2009. That was my first Thanksgiving as a vegan. Not only was I thankful to be with my family, but I was also thankful that my Thanksgiving was now a compassionate one.
