    It is near Thanksgiving time, it's traditional to count our blessings and think about what and who we're grateful for. It could be something big like good health, a happy home, loving friends and family, or the sacrifices of our troops overseas. Or you could be thankful for the small things: a puppy's wet nose, a bright blue sky, a good book, or a hot cup of coffee. Maybe you're thinking of someone who's had a big impact on your life, like a teacher, clergy member, or childhood buddy. You may even be grateful for the stranger who held the door open for you or let you go ahead of him in the supermarket checkout line.

    Why don't we all take a moment and post the the things we are thankful for.

    Me I am thankful for these things:

    My 37 years I have had with my DH. Now not all those times have been wonderful, as in every marriage they have had there ups and downs, but I am thankful for those times and hope I have many more ahead with him.

    My two wonderful sons, who again have not always been perfect, but have made me proud.

    A good job, which sometimes I grouse about....but hey I have one.

    A warm house, and plenty of food.

    A loving extended family.

    Good friends.....2 legged and 4 legged.

    And best of all..............ALL of you.

    I'm thankful that I can get up & do "most" of what I want to do each day at age 67 & can afford to pay all my bill on time while living in a nice warm house.

    I am thankful that I was born into a situation where I had the opportunity to build a good life for myself. So very many people, and many girls in particular, are not.

    DH beside me for 35 years. Health. 2 beautiful daughters. 2 wonderful sons-in-law. The 4 most beautiful, wonderful, brilliant, granddaughters in the whole wide world. OK, so I'm just a little prejudiced but we think they are pretty wonderful.

    I'm thankful for the time to work on quilts and enjoy this Quilting Board. I am thankful for my Family, friends and my Church home. The list is too long to write. Thank you LORD for each day I have.

    I am thankful for the 50 yrs I have had on this earth to experience all that it means to be human. The good and bad alike I treasure.Each experience is like a hard candy some sweet some sour that should be sucked and savored until there is no more.

    It's hard to pin what all I am thankful for. I have a wonderful husband and children that I am very thankful for. Extremely thankful that we have food and a roof over our heads because there was a time when we almost didn't have those. I would go without eating so that my kids would have food while DH was working his butt off trying to support us.

    Such a good topic. So many times we are focused on what we don't have!
    First and foremost I am grateful that I was sent from the " stork" (hee hee )to loving parents who gave me the best start they could. I know that's not a given.
    I am married to my original husband and we have 3 wonderful sons. Great family, my health, all of life's necessities and some non-necessities.
    My furbabies, and most definitely this board. I am so grateful to Konstantin for starting this.
    Thank you all for being who you are. :)

    I thank God that He sent His Son to die for my salvation.
    I'm also thankful for my health.
