What are you thankful for? Enter to win!

Of all the holidays, Thanksgiving is my favorite.  It's not about presents and it's not about candy.  It's about coming together and being thankful for all that we have.  2013 has been one of the hardest years I have ever experienced.  Transitions with work, raising a 4 year old girl who can be very emotional, chasing after a very active 18-month boy (who didn't sleep through the night until he was 14 months old!), paying attention to my husband, and trying to balance it all has been hard.

But I have it so good. I am so fortunate.  When I really step back and look at my life, if this is "hard" then what do people who really have it hard go through?  And that's when I feel truly grateful for my life.

I have very supportive parents, in-laws that I absolutely LOVE, and some true friends that have been loyal and uplifting whenever I feel down. I have a roof over my head and plenty of food in the fridge (though Connor seriously eats a lot...)   And we are all healthy.   For all these things, I am blessed.

  19. Hard to narrow it down to just one thing! I am so thankful for family and friends but I am very thankful for my job! I work at a family homeless shelter in downtown Columbus, Ohio. Why am I so thankful for my job, because it has taught me to appreciate what I have and who I am. We deal with families going through crisis every single day and I am so thankful that at the end of the day I have a supportive husband to go home to, a roof over my head, a loving family to include grand kids, wonderful neighbors and fridge with food. Working with the homeless you realize that many people have lost EVERYTHING! They are needing to start over! Some with or without family support, some with little or no education. Some families literally have nothing! I was talking with a friend over the weekend and saying how being poor takes all day! And boy does it! If you have an appointment at welfare it takes all day, if you are on the bus needing to go from place to place it takes all day, if you need to set up daycare, get to work and put dinner on the table and you are a single mom it takes all day! Going to work everyday just reminds me of how very lucky I am...Happy Thanksgiving!

Even though I lost my job and my husbands work place is slo, I am thankful that I can volunteer at mu son's school more, spend more time making healthy dinners for my family and finally (ok, ok, maybe!) getting caught up on all the house work (so thankful to have a house!) that I've pushed off til "I have more time". That time is now and I am so thankful that I'm here to do it.

  48. So thankful for so many things. This was a tough year for us in many ways (we lost two furbabies that we've had for 13 years); but it will end with us moving into our newly constructed house, gainfully employed in jobs we love, our health (with a goal to focus even more on this in the coming year), the love of friends and family, and the hope for an amazing new year!
