What Are You Thankful For?

I'm thankful for my supportive husband...

While my husband was deployed, I almost lost my life giving birth to my second child. I am thankful to see her turn 1 and to see her brother turn 2. Plus, he will be by our side this year for the holidays. - Patricia Xavier Burns

My husband is an amazing man, and right now he's stationed in Bahrain. We've been married for four and a half years and we have two beautiful sons. Since their births, he's put them first. I know he often dreams of the day he can sleep in a bed without tiny feet kicking him in the face or the day he can get that new sports car, instead of the minivan that fits our gigantic car seats, but with a smile he tickles tiny feet every night and sings the ABCs in the minivan. I always remember how lucky we are and how thankful I should be! - Ashley Holloway Bassner

I'm thankful for my husband and my daughter. My husband for serving in the military and sacrificing for us. He will be missed so much during the holidays. My daughter for being here while he is gone. She is the piece of him I get to keep with me always. - Amanda Baugh

Even though my husband has just been diagnosed with MS, he doesn't let that stop him from playing with our son on days when he's tired. I feel blessed that our marriage is strong enough to get through something so life-changing. I am also very thankful for my son who brings such joy to me, my husband, and anyone who meets him. - Desiree Cook
