I am thankful for each day and all my family and friends. l am thankful that l can walk in the morning mist and sit by a nice warm fireplace and candle light at night. l mostly thankful, l have a lovong God, for without Him, l would not have nothing.
I'm thankful for my God, my Country, my awesome family, my unbelievably wonderful friends, my adorable little dog Jazzi, and all my new friends I've made on the Ning Directory! I'm thankful to have food, shelter, clean hot water (something about having clean water always makes me give Thanks!), and the list goes on and on.
On this day of Thanks, Thanksgiving 2008, reach out and help someone. No matter how bad things are for you, there is always someone worse off. Take a warm meal to a shelter, feed a homeless person, rescue a lost animal, visit the elderly, call an old friend and tell them you love them - - do something for someone else.
I am thankful for all the wonderful people that I have met through my social network. I am thankful that my health is better after an operation. I am also glad we have a new President with new ideas. I am also thankful for my family.
Each year, I go down a long list of things that I am thankful for... family, friends, health, love, my pets, a roof over my head, a job.... and I am truly lucky that each year, that list seems to get longer and longer. This year, when I am counting all of my blessings, I am happy to say that I will also be counting you, Jen, and all of my wonderful online friends for making each day such a joy. I am also thankful that this is the second Thanksgiving that my little OzSee-dog will be walking to the dinner table. When he had his embolism and became paralyzed, I didn't think we'd be saying that, so I am ever so grateful and always quick to thank for that blessing.
I am thankful for my dad getting better after finding out he has complete kidney failure, for my husband being here with me , my son for being alive and here with me, my animals, my house, for the god and goddess for giving me a second chance at life.
Thanksgiving is much more than a big meal with family and friends. It's a time to reflect on, and be thankful for, all of the good things you have. If you have enough to eat, a place to live, a way to get around, people who care about you, or people you care about.
I am thankful that I live in a country that allows us to live, love, serve and believe as we want as long as it does not damage others. I am thankful that I serve in a community where we will serve 300 Thanksgiving meals for the less fortunate, the lonely and those who cannot make it home to family.
I am thankful that I can make a difference in lives and then see their victory as my own.
I am thankful for my faith in God who has given me hope, health and the mission to love and serve others.
