Thanksgiving Thread

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Since Thanksgiving is only a couple of days away, I thought it might be nice to have a thread where we could tell each other what we are thankful for this year.

Here are a few of mine:
My home
My job
My health
My family and friends. My dad had a very serious operation just a couple of weeks ago, and I am especially thankful that he is still here with us.

My life, because although full of activity it is quiet and peaceful here.

My friends, and you know who you are. It is wonderful to have such a broad base of friendship available over the Internet.

My husband and his endless patience he bestows to me every time I bring a new kitty into the house.

My horses for grounding me and giving me center and great horse hugs

My parents and their health. With Mike's mom deteriorating so rapidly (she is 96) I am so grateful that my mother and dad are doing well health wise.

To Anne and this board and to everyone here who shares their knowledge and kindness so extensively.

My parents, still hanging in there.
Mark, who's grown into a responsible adult.
Opie, Rowdy, Ike and our, to date, nameless puppy.
My safe,warm, comfy house.
Katey, my best friend, who DOES understand me.
All of my friends, here. I have trust issues and this place is safe.

Great idea, Lorie. This is why we have Thanksgiving!

I am so thankful for:

The health of my family
Animals, especially my cats and collie
The absolute majesty of nature
Music, created to give the heart a voice (not my original thought!)
Flowers-a special thanks, because their purpose is to give joy.
Books to teach and entertain
Curiosity, which enables us to learn about this beautiful world.
Freedom to believe and live the best lives we can
The goodness of many people
God's love, without which we would have none of the above.

I think Thanksgiving is such a lovely celebration and I really wish we had it in the UK. It's nice to be able to reflect and give thanks (to whichever God) for the good things.

I'd like to add my list if I may:

1. My lovely husband who is make a concerted effort to understand me
2. My Mother who I appreciate more and more as I get older and who is my best friend.
3. My beautiful cats that really give me purpose and have taught me about selfless love.
4. My senses. The ability to see, smell and experience the world around me. I never cease to wonder at what a beautiful world we live in and also why so many people can't or choose not to, see it.
5. Beauty. Of every sort. Be that art, music, poetry, prose, nature, friendship.
6. My health. Which hasn't always been good. But thank God is at the moment.

What am I thankful for?

Freedom of speech, freedom of thought and freedom of religion
My Dad and his continuing good health (we almost lost him to heart failure a few years ago)
My brother for becoming my friend as we've gotten older, and my sister-in-law for marrying him
Ivo and the other animals I've been blessed to share my life with (and even the greedy pigeons I feed)
A job that, on most occasions, satisfies everything I need and want in a job
My friends, both face-to-face and cyber. It has been a really wonderful experience to meet so many interesting and wonderful experience here and feel safe (I'm really shy, believe it or not!)
My apartment, because it's finally feeling like home.
