What Are You Thankful For, Wyandotte?

As Thanksgiving approaches, Wyandotte Patch wants to know what you're thankful for.

Thanksgiving. Giving thanks.

The turkey and mashed potatoes (we'll stop here to avoid the food coma already) are nice, but we know it's not the true purpose of the fourth Thursday of every November.

So tell us, what are you thankful for?

It might be something huge in your life or it could be that small thing that someone did that left a lasting impact.

Leave it in the comments below.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Great one Jason - so many things to be thankful for this day. First, I am Thankful that I live in America where freedom reigns. I am thankful for my church in Wyandotte where I am free to worship God as I choose. I am Thankful for family, even though it gets smaller as years go by. I am Thankful for my job, might not be the best but it has kept me going for 30 years. I am thankful for my body and mind - not the best but it is what it is. Thankful for friends I hold dear. Thankful for the City of Wyandotte and the Animal shelter where I can volunteer and care of the the orphan animals there. Thankful for Wyandotte Patch as it brings the local news. Many things to be Thankful for couldn't stop at one but will stop babbling now. Will be watching to see what others are thankful for this day. I was given a challenge to write down every day 3 things I am thankful for and can't repeat one thing for 30 days. I like this challenge and will do it starting today. How about you?

I am thankful for my family, of course, and for good health, and for new directions in my life. And for Patch -- for helping me find those. :)

I am thankful for my husband and my family. We are all very close and are there for each other when we need it most, and I don't know what I would do without them.

So many things to be thankful for, but I've summarized my top 5 on my blog. My new baby girl and wife are very important, and can't be thankful enough. http://www.ordinaryparent.com/2011/11/21/thanksgiving-2011-what-im-thankful-for/

I am thankful for the cultural heritage and traditions my Polish mother and Italian Father gifted to my brothers and I . This Thanksgiving the special recipes will be made with the LOVE of our mother ,father and grand parents that bind us together on a deeper level. I am thankful for my most loved daughter and grand daughter and our beautiful nieces and nephews that will carry on these traditions. I am thankful for friends that have become family,and for our Wyandotte community. Happy Thanksgiving!

I am thankful for the extraordinary volunteers (past & present) of WAG Animal Rescue (formerly Wyandotte Animal Group) who have saved thousands of lives of homeless animals. And, who knows, we may have saved a turkey or two during our 23 years, as well. I appreciate you all.

I am thankful to be a member of a wonderful family and to have a great group of friends. I'm thankful for the birth of my niece Sarah, who came into the world just three weeks ago, and made me an uncle for the first time. Also, I'm thankful for the chance to be a part of Patch, which has allowed me to work with a lot of great people and has helped me discover a lot about myself.
