Show Us: What Are You Thankful for This Year?

We all love Thanksgiving because of the delicious food, but there is so much more to be thankful for this year. Patch wants your photos of what you are thankful for this holiday season.

Everyday we are thankful for the people and things in our lives, but Thanksgiving is the time of year when we tend to reflect on life and the true meaning of Thanksgiving.

Family, friends, jobs, our homes, our pets and the communities we live in are some of the things that come to mind, but Patch wants to know what are you thankful for this year?

I guess I'm thankful that because the universe is ordered and lawful, that one can hope things will work out if one puts in an honest effort, and that if things get too far out of balance that the balance will get restored one way or the other.

Every day I begin and end my day with thoughts of gratitude. It's a habit that I try very hard to never break! My greatest gift is my little family of two; I've been blessed with a wonderful daughter. She's now a young adult and never ceases to amaze me with her innate love of self and confidence. What a joy and privilege it is to watch her make her way into adulthood. Grateful!

Thank you for giving me the mother that I had who always said to me, no matter what the disaster " It will be all right". Even though I always believed her (which has given me the sunny nature that I have right now) I wondered how in the wo rld it would all be all right. But you know what? It always was one way or another. She was my rock...smooth and solid. Thank you for giving me my father. Even though he was a relentless alcoholic who eventually became the town drunk, he gave me a fined-honed sense of humor and a belief that some blue sky was right ahead. He was one of the funniest people I've ever known in spite of his telling me outrageous lies and stories, Thank you for giving me the Mac Minn and Cole families. and the grandmothers that went with. They were women who had 9 and 13 children respectively and were New England strong. My aunts and uncles were beautiful and crazy. All had the best stories about their lives.. both frightening and hilarious. I just listened and listened (just like Gabriel in Peter Churchmouse). My love of reading came from these people. My love of laughing until I cry came directly from all the above. Thank you for my own family, who have done their level best to make me proud, keep me interested, and who's main job in my view, is always to amuse me. What's your story? Happy Turkey Day!

I'm thankful for modern medical science and research. Particularly, the growing expertise in the field of cardiology, namely percutaneous coronary intervention procedures and the non-surgical application of stents. This saved (extended) my father's life this year. I'm also grateful for the development of cochlear implants. My 6 year old nephew heard his mother's voice for the first time in his life in September.

I'm thankful that I live in California and not some place that gets really, really cold during Thanksgiving :)
