As thanksgiving comes upon us once more, we remember the blessing we experience and are grateful not only at this time of year but all year long. Share what you’re thankful for in the comments!
Melanie: I am thankful for my husband. He is my #1 supporter. He knows how to push me out of my comfort zone and makes me a better person each day.
Lauren: I’m most thankful for my family. I️ always look forward to hanging out together after work, and they never fail to remind me that we are a strong support system. As I get older, I️ realize more and more how lucky I am to have that.
Carolyn: I’m thankful for my health and the health and blessings of my family.
Deirdre: I am ever so grateful for my husband. He is so hardworking and truthful, and I realize that I could not live my dreams without him by my side supporting me each step of the way.
Sandy: While Thanksgiving stirs thoughts of grateful hearts and expressions of grace around the family table, I believe a “gratitude attitude” is an ever-present state-of-mind, a spirit of wonder and joy that notices blessings all around each and every one of us. I am grateful for compassionate and loving family and friends who inspire me every day, my faithful God who infuses my spirit with His love and guidance, the gifts of time, talent, and treasure which we are encouraged to share with others. I am grateful for the blessings of homeschooling, scouting, amazing teachers in piano, karate, and environmental science, the gifts of role models and volunteers at church, in our community, and throughout the wonderful town of West Bridgewater. Sunny days, starry nights, glorious oak-lined walks, the beauty of the seasons, New England sunsets, oceans, mountains, lakes, and fields are among nature’s gifts; while heroes in medicine, law enforcement, education, and other fields stir gratitude in my spirit because they make the world a better place. I am grateful for this country which, despite its scars, still rises as a beacon of freedom and hope for each of us. I am thankful for the human spirit which always has the chance to begin again–to persevere, to share, inspire, love, and serve one another.
Cheryl: I’m thankful for my family and friends. But this year I’m really thankful for being able to write and being able to freelance write. It has enabled to meet the most wonderful people I would have never met otherwise.
Tanya: This time of year, I am thankful for our beautiful home and the holidays that bring us together with our friends and family. Also, I am ever thankful for our friends that are like family to us. When life gets crazy and parenting tough, I’m truly thankful for our blessings.
