Last year had been the worst year financially since I got married for 12 years now. It made me really treasure the value of any single cent. Yes that's true. It was really a disaster. With debts and daily needs all over, I was totally helpless. I could really say that business is not at all good. And last year was totally a sad experience. We borrowed money here and there to be able to pay for our ten wheeler truck so that checks we issued would not bounce. Since our business seemed so slow at that time. Oh I couldn't anymore recall how we were able to survive that trial. But thanks God we have completed the payment and have a stable finances right now. Praise God for it! Alleluia!

I am so happy for you. That sounded like a disaster. I am very glad you are back on track. Having money problems really makes you think before you spend doesn't it. I am very thankful we are being wise with our money. Right now is a very scary economical time. Thank you for sharing with me. Keep up the good work. I would say you will be happy around your Thanksgiving table this year.

Even though I don't celebrate thanksgiving, but I would say... I'm most thankful of all the protestants whom never came in front of my house to talk to me about Jesus... I totally hate... One great summer, when you're watching your TV shows while lying on the bed... you're just too lazy to get up... then "they" rang the bell of your house... they won't stop till you show up... it's really irritating. Well, I'm thankful because they didn't come and bother me this year, and hopefully next year...

The most i am very thankful for, is giving me two very lovely kids, they inspire to go on in life. A husband, who always there for me, support and cared for me and love me more than anyone else. I am thankful to GOD, that giving me life with full of happiness and love. My life may not be perfect when it comes to material things, but most important to me is the people around me who love me and accept me for what I am...

Each of us has difficulty in life. And dealing with it is tough but make us even more stronger and better person. But sometimes if not most of the time, we felt hopeless and tired already. As if there's nothing we can do anymore...But with our strong faith to God, every problem is getting lighter. And because of this, I most thankful for having HIM with me/us always. For with HIM nothing is impossible. With all the blessings, good/perfect family, relatives and friends, giving us life and good health will be the next one to be thankful for.

I am sorry that you have had to go through so much. I do hope that things get better. In response to your question I am thankful to have my boyfriend. He has helped put a roof over my head, food in my mouth and has kept me going this year.

When my daughter grows up, I'm sure she'll move away and get her own place and I'll miss seeing her everyday. But, for now, we're all together under one roof. And, for that, I'm most grateful.

I am most thankful for the 3 wonderful children I have and that when they got RSV and Pneumonia, that they didn't have to be hospitalized and that they got better quick. I am also thankful for my husband who works his butt off to provide for us and doesn't complain when he gets hurt. I'm not working and I am trying to find work, but my husband really works hard and thats something that not only me but anyone else who stays at home should be thankful for. I'm thankful for the wonderful house my husband got us to fit our whole family in. I am extrememly thankful for all the help and support we get from my parents and my husbands parents, and especially our church. I don't know where we would be right now in life, if it wasn't for the help of our close family and friends getting us through each day. I am also thankful for the car my husband bought me so I could transport my kids to and from places in a safe vehicle. My husband got sick about a year ago, and it was a tough time to deal, he was in the hospital and we had our twin boys. I hated being at home without him and I knew he didn't like being there without us. So many of our friends and family supported not only me but my husband through that difficult time, and I was able to go and spend time with him and it was only a matter of time before he came out and was back at home. I am thankful for everybody in my life and everything that they all do for me and my family!

It sounds like you have got through quite a lot in life! I'm thankful for the fact that I can see, I can hear, I can walk and I can hear the sounds of the world around me. I guess I'm thankful for every new day that arrives and I'm still alive! I know that this is a cliche but it still rings true! There are others that are always going through something worse than yourself. I never forget this and so I am always grateful for the senses that we seem to take for granted. I give thanks for my life at the end of each day and I ask for many similar days in the future! Andrew
