What Are You Thankful For?

I'm thankful for my children...

I am thankful to see my 21-month-old already using the manners we have taught him. Goes to show that children do respond when they hear please, thank you, and other kind words. As a teacher, I hear too often about children who have no idea how to speak respectfully to others. - Laura Elizabeth Dunn Krcmar

A few years ago, we spent Thanksgiving in the hospital, while my beautiful 6-year-old girl was having more than 100 seizures a day. Her seizures are now fairly stable and she is healthy, happy, and loving life. Every morning she tells me she loves me and I thank God for this wonderful gift. - Maria Ueland Gibbons

We are thankful for our beautiful and well-tempered daughter, Rori. A lot of our friends with children seem to have health problems or they complain about their children's tempers. Our 13-month-old has been a blessing for us and we can't wait to welcome another baby to our family someday! - caitnick1

I am thankful for my adopted daughter and my biological son. My 10-year-old daughter chooses every day to love me in return. She has not once ever uttered the words, "I hate you" or "I don't have to listen to you. You're not my mother!" Instead, she thanks me for being the best mommy that I can be. She is the most beautiful girl that I know, inside and out. My 3-year-old son wasn't supposed to be, but now I have a handsome little red-headed firecracker who proves that doctors are not, in fact, God. My son taught me what it meant to never give up and my daughter taught me that blood doesn't mean family. - Jackie Tinsley

Today I am thankful for God's love and for the opportunity to love my good friend's infant son, who only has hours left on this earth. - Molly Lee
