    I am thankful that even though I absolutely hate what my job has become, that I am still employed.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all.

    I too am thankful for many things, among them my family and friends. I am also thankful for this country, and the liberties and rights we still enjoy.

    I am thankful for the opportunity to be a part of this board and community. I have learned much in my short time here.

    Cheers.

    George Washington declared this day in Nov to be a day of thanks to God for everything. I thank God for life,liberty and the persuit of happyness. While many have never been taught about this day, it's about who you thank for it, not numbering the things you have.

    I agree with everyone that's posted so far.
    My family and friends. Probably most my aging parents. (79 & 76)
    Life.
    The job that's not what it used to be, but allows me to take care of the family and continue to play.
    The country we all live in, the people who fought for it and the people who still do.

    I'll be frying the turkey for my family's gathering at the folks again this year. I've come to understand that Thanksgiving and Christmas are not about the food and gifts, it's about the love I have for my family and friends. Even though I have acquired a bunch of "toys", the people and animals in my life are what makes it all worth while. Stuff's replaceable, life isn't.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all. ;)

    I am thankful a great number of things including; my beautiful wife, loving kids, a warm house, a good job, my health, family security, and financial stability. But most of all, I am thankful for my God and savior, Jesus Christ who gives me grace beyond my ability to deserve or understand. I offer Him thanks for joy, peace, patience, hope, and my life which I dedicate to Him. (SBG = Saved By Grace)

    Whatever you believe and where ever you are, have a great Thanksgiving!

    I'm thankful for my family and for all of our service men and women at home and abroad that aren't with their families today. May God bless them and keep them safe.

    A little delayed . . . . but in the times we are in when so many are without, I'm thankful to have something to be thankful for.
