Expressing our feelings isn’t always an easy thing to do especially when it comes directly from the heart. Maybe there is someone very special that you’ve never really told them how thankful you are for either something they did or simply to have them in your life. It could be your secret admirer, friend, mom, dad, sibling, neighbor, co-worker or even a LCB member.
Or maybe you're thankful for good health, home, job etc.
Tell us about that important person or thing in your life you are thankful for and why. We are NOT looking for generic one or two sentence posts either!
For Thanksgiving or Christmas a great gift idea would be to copy your post and place it in a card or on pretty paper, frame it and give it to that special someone or if it is something put it on your wall as a constant reminder.
Please note all posts including pictures must be ORGINAL content. No copying from any outside sources.

I know I’m not perfect -and I don’t live to be- but before you start pointing fingers… make sure you hands are clean!” B.M
My story is a little personal,but knowing how many couples has gone through the same thing i will share it .Since i was dating my hubby ,my dream was to marry him and have a child with him.So the first dream came true we got married but having a child,it took me 5 long years to have a child.The time was passing by and i couldnt stay pregnant ,the Dr.were telling me that everything will be ok i just have to wait ,till that happened.After the 5 year long, hard period for me i said ,if i dont have a child i will adopt one.But after exactly 1 month the miracle happened i was pregnant and that happened around Christmas time ,my Orthodox Christmas which is on 7th January.So I am thankful to God,that he made me a parent and to my little son ,who is 8 years old now,for all the lovely and happy moments he has given to us!

I don't consider been thankful for my society status, health, home etc. is something to be thankful for because some is ambition, some is patients, and some is dumb luck... Health is something because it's still there (sometimes) and is the general thing to be thankful for.

But personally I am thankful for the MISTAKES I made, that didn't messed me up so bad that I would be, let's put it like a burden for the society! My mistakes are my own and they made me the man I am today... (not to be overly narcissistic). I admit that those were made by stupid decisions and that they could have been avoided but well...
And I am thankful for my friends and family who stood by me to make them and hopping that they will still "stay" with me for not to many ahead.

I am grateful for the fact that I have very often been ill in spite of I still life courage has. I can still laugh. I am not left myself thankfully for it my forces and I am a warrior. moreover, I am grateful for it I though a few, however, for it those of all best ones makes friends in the world has. everybody away with me go all the same like stony and hard he is.moreover, I am grateful for it other lcb user are so lenient and do not hunt me because of my bad in English linguistic proficiency to the devil :'X

I am Thankful for each and every day I wake up and am able to enjoy my kids and grand kids . I have 4 children and am thankful that we never got a call from jail ,no drug or alcohol problems. My children are responsible parents and good people. My daughters put themselves through school later in life , one is a wonderful RN and the other a CPA, my sons are fabulous Dads and in their 30's taking classes as well. They may never change the world but they are raising 10 wonderful grandchildren. I am Thankful to be a survivor to be able to see them grow. Each and every day is a precious jewel to be enjoyed and savored. I am home bound most of the time , so getting out now and then is a joy. Thankful for courteous service people . I am especially thankful for my Friends on the Net! , they have kept me company during some depressing times and treatments. I look out my window this morning and see sand cranes on my lawn. What a glorious day to drink my coffee on the porch and Thank , Spirit, God , Goddess or what ever you believe . Take a moment to Thank someone today! Happy Thanksgiving to all our wonderful members .

It literally means, that those who don't honor the small things aren't deserving of the bigger things.
I never really understood the real depth of that phrase, until i had really gotten out of one of the most amazing streaks of bad luck in my life, and i am not talking about gambling..
Without going into detail about the "horrors" i experienced, since that would be more suitable for halloween:p , i just want to say that in life, sometimes a person has to reinvent his or her self, and try to find a ray of light in dark times..
I came to a point, where i somehow remembered my early childhood, specifically my joy of life, and my amazement at all the funny stuff happening in nature, everyday, since at that age most was new to me:)
I started to watch a lot of amazing nature documentaries, and some of these are showing some deeply saddening images, some even seem cruel or horrific, but in the end, it's all natures way, and the only thing you can do as a human, is fight, just like animals do.,
Now we, at least most of us, are in the position that we don't have to fight for sheer survival, food, or shelter, since most of us have these at hand, or can obtain these with help from others, so what's left is our world of sensations: we can fight to keep our senses, good humour, and health to absorb life to the fullest, or get through it as good as we can.
Three very important factors to enjoy life and get through the harder times or face the challenges that life often places us in. All of these factors you can influence with effort, as you can improve your health, and also regain your senses or train them, and practice your humour, and learn to laugh at yourself too.
And then there are your true friends and family, the good ones aren't for granted, but if you strive to be good to yourself, and to others, "do not do onto others what thou wouldst not do to thyself" and help where you can, these people will stick to your side and be for life...
What i am saying is, i have become really thankful, for the wonders of nature, for the small things in life, one laugh is easily gained but never lost, or wasted as long as you don't take things too seriously and it is from the heart!
I am really thankful to be alive and healthy, and will fight to remain like this for as long as i can!
How do we change the world ?

I will write something later but had to say what a great idea and than to know that it is posted on the net. .......... For Thanksgiving or Christmas a great gift idea would be to copy your post and place it in a card or on pretty paper, frame it and give it to that special someone or if it is something put it on your wall as a constant reminder.

This is a tough subject to write about without going on, and on, and on because I have so many things I am sincerely thankful for in my life. I will be brief, but to the point in my story about the most important thing, I am thankful for and it is this man.
I am so very, very, thankful for a true one-of-a-kind man that is the major part of my life. He is not only drop dead handsome, but also witty, funny, strong in mind and body, compassionate, a hard worker and provider, and a tad bit sensitive at times. As I mentioned I could go on and on, but those qualities and character are just the tip of the iceberg that this man possesses.
I suppose I am like other people in that I don’t say “Thank-you” enough for the little things this man does everyday for me. I just recently realized that I have been taking for granted or assuming that he would fix it, or take care of it and not give another thought to whatever it was that needed attention or help. Also that my expressed appreciation was late in delivery and sometimes said as an old, “Oh by the way, Thank-you!” I had gotten so busy in day-to-day living or side-tracked with non-important things that I had forgotten how incredibly blessed and fortunate I am to have this man in my life.
This man is the most unbelievable listener. I so very often use him as my sounding board when I think my idea is a good one and I just need a yeah or nay; or I have written an important letter and I want an honest opinion regarding the subject. This man also lets me vent my frustrations out loud to him and never gives an opinion or judges unless asked.
I just could not imagine my life without this man. There are millions of things I have been successful in or with and this is mostly due to this man and his patience with me. He is not perfect and at times has been short in his answers and some of his answers were not quite right on the money, but he has never failed to take time for me and my world.
These are just a few traits that a true best friend is made of and they are ones that I try to copy and incorporate into my life. “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery” and if I can become only a small percentage of what this man is and represents, I can honestly say,”I am a pretty decent human being.”
Oh, I almost forgot to say who this man is………
His name is Jerry (Tid to me), he’s 69 years young, U.S. Vietnam veteran, and I am proud and so very thankful to call him my husband and best friend for the last 35 years.

I am thankful for my to children and four awesome grand kids that lights up my life and makes all of the of rotten stuff that life threw at me and its amazing I am still here! You know the normal things that life throws at you like large poor family, alcoholic dad, alcoholic brothers, sister dying from stage 4 liver cirrhosis,brother died at 7 run down by hit an run driver broke all of his bones except for one if your out there you know what you have done how do you live with your self, other brother died under a tree in California under a tree behind a blockbuster 20 cents in his pocket San Francisco jacket on and bled from every orifice in his body that detectives told me initially they thought he was shot but after discover his liver erupted, he was homeless, nephew died from anthrax pill who was soon to be deployed to Iraq because of 911, other nephew died at age 49 due to renal cancer, other nephew is spending most of his life in prison he just cant seem to get right maybe because he is bipolar, sister died suddenly just four years ago she was my best friend SO lost without her, very hard to get over her death I now have panic attacks and anxiety attacks from this one, oldest brother disgust me molested my nieces, and almost got away with it with his grand children i hate him. Thought i was the only one he did that to when I was a little girl. Now i feel tremendous guilt from that situation because if i had told my mom what was going on when i was 5 Thu 12 years of age and trust me she asked me to due to the rashes, she would of stopped him then but even so young youlearn to lie especially if your predator tells you it will make your mom die if she knew. what the heck he was doing . i was just a kid, but still no excuse on my end should of told her .his arrest was recent in the past couple of years still trying to figure out why he did that,I could go on and on but I don't want to bore anyone because one thing i have learned in life even if there is such heartache in life i look at my kids and grandkids with such
amazement and love and most of all thankful that God has given me such joy from them as my reward for my messed up life and soon they will be here for thanksgiving dinner cant get better then that!happy Thanksgiving everyone and many more always be thankful for what you have.
