This year we welcomed a new daughter into the family when she married my son 2 weeks ago. She is sweet and they are so in love. It's cute to watch them together. I also finally am employed full time for the first time in 9 years. I'd been working piecemeal jobs here and there while going to school. Got my degree 3 years ago and state license the same year. I enjoy working with the kids and have a good classroom teacher to work with.

I've been blessed.

I'm thankful for the wonderfully caring and supportive husband I somehow had the wisdom to marry almost 30 years ago. I used to work with someone who had a heart attack at age 36; her husband left her because he couldn't handle it. With my health crisis of the last several years and having to leave my job last year, DH has gone above and beyond many times and we are closer than ever.

Kayelle and Jabbur, I'm thrilled about your new family members, and PF - good to hear your situation isn't more serious.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, everyone!

There are too many things I am thankful for. Good health, a loving wife, grand kids, and (finally) a job that I truly enjoy, though I never saw it coming.
I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season.

I am thankful to be alive and to live so close to my two sisters. Life certainly has its ups and downs and it feels great to be on an uptick. I just got back from a lovely dinner, surrounded by family and friends. I was responsible for the turkey and mashed potatoes for 25 and Alton Brown and I did good

You all have some wonderful stories. No major events this year, so I'll just say that I'm thankful to have a terrific family and many good friends.

I'm thankful that so many of you have such wonderful stories to share. I hope this Thanksgiving made more happiness for all your lives.

I'm very thankful that for every major " event" in our lives we have had a safety net to catch us. We have food to share, financial stability (thanks Mom and Dad for beating budgets into me from the cradle), and are decently healthy for being on the dark side of 60. And I'm thankful for my DC friends - you bring me many chuckles, whether intended or not.
