Sure, there’s the turkey and pumpkin pie. And there’s football for sports fans and parades for the kids and early morning shopping for the deal-seekers.
But Thanksgiving is also a day about reflection. It’s a day to stop and think about all the good in our lives.
So we want to know: when all is said and done, what are you giving thanks for this year?
It can be silly or sweet, simple or profound. We just want to hear it.
Here are a few responses from Patch readers in the region. Check them out, and then tell us what you’re grateful for in the comments.
Dawn Blythe of Jackson Township said:
“I'm thankful for a husband who provides so I can be a stay at home mom! We may not have a fancy house, the nicest cars, or the newest things, but I can be w/ my kiddos, and that is so much more important to me than the other stuff.”
Denise McDannold of Canton said:
“I am thankful for my 3 boys who bring joy to my life. Also for my husband who provides a beautiful home for us to be a family in. In our busy lives, we forget how thankful we are, but I am so thankful for the many friends I have and are there in good times and in bad. Where would we be without them? Here’s to FRIENDS. And last I am thankful for the Patch, what a great site to discover. You rock.”
