I love Thanksgiving Day because it is the time set aside for families to gather together and count our blessings.
I'm thankful for my two daughters and four grandchildren, who are the light in my world.
I'm thankful for my health.
I am thankful for the people I meet each day and the stories they tell me. I recently talked with an elderly man who was taking care of his sick wife. They had been married for 62 years. People don't share stories any longer.
I am thankful for my home, in light of the many tornado victims who lost their homes this year.
I am thankful for a job when I have seen so many lose their jobs in this poor economy.
Most of all, I am thankful for God, who has made me stronger during my trials and hasn't given up on me yet.
