  1. I am very thankful for my friends. My family moved to a small town, Republic, many years ago miles away from my family. My friends here are my family, both in good times and bad. I have found that no matter where any of our lives are at any point in time, my friends are always there! As we all have grown older, we have grown even closer. We have so much fun together. We Are Family and I am very thankful for all of them!!!

  3. I am thankful for many things in my life. I am thankful that I wake up every morning. I am thankful for all my children. They are all special in their own way. Each has proved to me that I didn’t do too shabby of a job raising them They are all caring and have watched over me since my husbands death and would be here at a moments notice if need be. Each calls every day. My son has taken over and checks on me everyday. Sometimes several times a day and always offers his services for anything I need. My four girls are equally as attentive for any of my needs. They are always there when needed. For that I am very thankful and couldn’t ask for anything better. I have cherished their friendship and wonder why all families are not like mine. I am a very fortunate mother.

  4. I am most Thankful for My dad. I am 46 Years old and I have not always made the right choices in My life and even though I know he was disappointed in the way my life was going, he never even hinted to me that he was and he always help me when I needed him which was often at times, But he never said no. Well I can say I have finally turned it around and I feel I am someone now he can be proud of. Even tho I have not thanked him nearly enough or told him How much I appreciate him and Love him I could not have done it without him and his support. I am so very Thankful for My Father.

  5. I am thankful for my sister, Tammy. She epitomizes what is means to be selfless. She never asks for anything yet gives everything all the while dealing with severe arthritis that she has had since she was 23. In all her daily pain, I have never heard her complain or feel sorry for herself. She has been there for my family through my cancer and our Dad’s cancer this summer and this fall. She is my earth-walking angel!

  9. I am very thankful for my daughter Vanessa. Yes, my life would be a whole lot easier. but I didn’t ever think that I’d have her. I was 40 years old without much of a sex life and was very accepting of the fact that I didn’t have any children.I thought throughout my whole pregnancy that I would lose her. I lift heavy objects. Moved from a place all by myself with only little help. I expected the worse. When she was born she was 4 pds 14 oz. (my mom’s biggest baby was 6 pds I was 5) She was perfectly healthy and got to come home with me thank god cause I would’ve been really bonkers. I am VERY thankful for her. She is now 11 months old. I couldn’t imagine going a day without seeing , hearing, touching her I still need a lot of sleep cause since she’s been born I just started taking naps recently when she does but she only sleeps an hour a day. then at night time I stay up til 1am to have some alone time and she wakes up between 7:30 and 8am and a lot of time once or twice a night to be changed or fed. I need a good nights rest!

  12. I am thankful for my family. I come from a family that grew up in small family business. My parents could not be home much because thye worked to provide a good life for me and my siblings. We all had to work during our young childhood giving up many activities that children do.

I am thankful for them bringing us in a God loving home and letting us know that with God in our lives and heart allis possible.
