Writingprompt_thanksgivingWriting Prompt: What are you thankful for?

I am Thankful for my family. I am Thankful I had a mom who raised me with lots of love and good values. I am Thankful I was born in the United States. I am Thankful I got to go to college. I am Thankful I love my job. I am Thankful I don't have the chronic disease that runs in my family. I am Thankful for my failures because they made me stronger. I am Thankful for God. I am Thankful for good friends, good books, and good desserts.

There's a lot more I'm thankful for, but this is a start! With so many things going on these days that can be hard, sad, and thought-provoking in our lives, Thanksgiving is a good time to get thinking about some of those simple, basic things we have to be thankful for.

So whether simple, serious, or silly, drop us a line in the Comments, and tell us what YOU are thankful for.

Happy Turkey Day!
