What Are You Most Thankful For?

Sometimes it’s hard to remember the true meaning of Thanksgiving when you’re in the haze that comes from a heaping serving of turkey and stuffing. It’s easy to get distracted by all the football games. And it’s practically impossible to reflect on important issues after a second or third go at the pumpkin pie.

But when all the dishes have been rinsed off and you’ve loosened the top button on your Thanksgiving pants, it’s time to put a little thought into what matters most in your life. For some, the fact that they are surrounded by loved ones on the special occasion is all that matters. Others count their blessings that they have a good job in a still floundering economy.

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, many feel fortunate that they have a roof over their heads. While there are those who can’t believe they went another year with the benefit of good health. And in an election year lots of people are reminded how happy they are to live in a democratic society -- even if the outcome wasn’t exactly to their liking. With so much to be happy about, we have to ask: What are you most thankful for?

    All of the above, with the exception of a Democratic society, because I'm a Republican, and a conservative, and don't agree with the direction the Democrats are taking our Country. But good health and family head the list. Health, I'm 87 and still in good health, feeling good, with no known health problems, so I'm very Thankful for that.

    Except for my health, because I am in poor health so that doesn't apply; and also my job because I'm still in school and the school I go to is a major reason for the poor health. But I am mostly grateful for the best boyfriend in the world. :)

    I'm leaving a comment because I was quick to click and then i was not allowed to change it (boo-hoo-hoo, poor me. Right? Whatever...) Any way, I am thankful for my family and friends, but I'm also thankful for everything else that God has blessed me with and most important I'm thankful that He sent his son to die for me on the cross. Jesus' death covers my flaws and my inability to be perfect. It allows mercy and grace to flow over me rather than guilt and pain. Talk about freedom... Praise God! I'm thankful for Jesus!!!!

    I had actually tried to pick 4 out of the five, but once I chose the first one it counted as my vote. I have a lot to be thankful for and for that I am thankful.

    I love the saying we should be grateful for whats around the table not what on the table.
    Mind you if i can have something good on the table has well its a bonus.

    Since I can only select one, I had to select this one as most of the above are true... Except for the democratic society one.

    You Americans are truly blessed to have your wonderful constitutional rights! I pray I'll live to see the day when we here in Malaysia can also enjoy freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of association, balance of powers, independence of the judiciary, free and fair elections, etc.

    Let me remind you that we are not a democracy, we are a republic. It's easy to confuse. In a democracy, 51% can vote to make the 49% slaves. In a our republic, everyone has inalienable rights.

    I am thankful for my friend's and family's health. We ate black-eyed peas on New Year's Day, which probably helped us a little. I love my family (and friends) and am so glad they're healthy and happy.

    Funny that "All of the Above" put everything else on the bottom. I had to think about one of the answers, but I am glad to live in a democratic society, even though it is extremely fickle these days.

    Im grateful for so many things!! God has really blessed me and my family. And Why is living in a democratic society something to be grateful for??...

    Beats the living heck out of Cuba, or Saudi Arabia or anywhere in Africa, for sure.

    i say all of above because you really need those things in your life to survive but the most important is your family no matter what.
