|Being ThankfulPage 2 of 2 (1, 2)|
|I am thankful for being given a second chance at life...the right way...|
I am thankful that I have learned to value myself now enough to let only positive, healthy people in my life...
I am thankful for the journey to realization that I have the power to create my own destiny...it has made me a more effective helper and a much happier person.
I am thankful for my health, and the health of those I love.
I am thankful for a wonderfully bright and thoughtful child.
And I am thankful about finally meeting the right guy for me and knowing without a doubt that it will last a lifetime...
(It's true...the only person you can change is yourself...stop looking for Mr. or Miss Perfect, they don't exist. )
I am thankful for Karma. It really does exist.
Thank you to a higher power for my many blessings. There have been times when the only thing I had was faith...and it let me float. Blessings may not be easy to attain...but then nothing worthwile ever is...

|- health - home - hounds - job - talents - relatives - friends and the sense that things are more or less the way they should be. I suppose you could call it inner peace. I am thankful that I can feel gratitude because it is one of the most wonderful feelings of all.|

|every year, I am thankful for being alive!!|
I had a really bad mountain biking bail in oct 99 that almost took my life
every day since then, I have been thankful for just being able to walk again, and everything else that I am still able to do

|In addition to my earlier post in this thread, I am thankful for, and in no particular order:|
* electricity that lights my home, and makes my home comfortable, powers my devices and so much more.
* indoor plumbing and flush toilets
* thermostats for heating systems
* pain-relief medications, be they Tylenol or the more potent, to ease the pain I've endured.
* recorded music, the music that I might dance to, sway to, or just enjoy... I am not musically talented.
* radio, television and the Internet that makes the world smaller with news and knowledge.
* photography, the wonderful invention that lets me enjoy the views of the planet and beyond that people share with me, and that lets me share my views with others
* high-definition television... wow
* the pleasure and intimacy of sex
* remote controls for the various devices that need to be controlled
* refrigeration to keep my food from spoiling so quickly and my beverages cold.
* the telephone, the cordless telephone and cellular phone, which lets me keep in touch with loved ones, friends and clients, from near and far
* computers and the many enabling features I have come to love and depend on to enrich my life and earn a living. My handwriting is terrible but I can write legibly now too.
* humour - things that make me laugh and my sense of humour, that lets me and others enjoy life
* GPS navigation systems, chart plotters and depth sounders, so I know where my boat is on the ocean, and how deep the water is under and near me, and if there is anything of interest in the water.
* hockey, especially if not violent.
* and last but definitely not least, Plenty of Fish and the many fine fishy friends near and far that have come into my life.

|Thank ful for:|
Warm sunshine on upturned faces
The glow from a wonderful hug
The lovely buzz that comes from a cats' purr and the brush of their whiskers
Opportunity to live, love and learn
The first deep stretch after a long car ride
A profession that challenges me
Friends that rally for me when in need
The opportunity to return kindness and caring
Relaxing in a lovely hot tub
Happy Thanks Giving Everyone
|Being Thankful....very thankful|

|I'm thankful for the "man" I have become (though it wasn't always that way)|
and for all the great influences in my world that have made me who I am today...
And that after almost half a century...the Girls still think I'm " Hawt "....
Love and gratitude to all my friends who are here and elsewhere...

"A Day of General Thanksgiving to Almighty God for the bountiful harvest with which Canada has been blessed .. and to be observed the second Monday in October"
Ah so it is Monday and not Sunday. I'm thankful for having that cleared up! :)
More generally, I'm thankful for just what they suggested there - that because I am from Canada, I was born with the privileges and possibilities to live the life I've led.
Perhaps perversely, I'm also thankful for having grown up relatively poor by Canadian standards and having had to work for what I got, because having survived to adulthood I find I cope with real problems way better than many richer people I grew up with.

|There have been ongoing challenges, and many changes, but overall, this year has been a year of answered prayers and dreams come true.|
I am thankful ...
that my daughter safely realized a dream of hers this past summer, a dream she's had ever since she was a little girl
that my son is still in school, primarily due to the generosity of those who have nothing to gain but to see others realize their dreams
for the honour of standing beside a dear friend on the day she married the man of her dreams
that someone I care about is now cancer free
that for every door that closed, a window was opened
for good days .. and good memories
for all this October sunshine!
and last but never least, I always thankful for my children, my parents, my family and friends.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

|Funny, I sat at the dinner table tonight, looked at my daughters, and said a silent prayer.|
A good friend, teamate, recent father( 3 months) and great guy, died on Saturday night, hit by a driver making an illegal turn, sad how 4 wheels hitting 2 the 4 always wins.
I guess I'm thankful for the years I've had, and the ones I may still have, in the company of family and friends.

All I got to do is act naturally
