What I want to know, during this month of Thanksgiving, is what are you thankful for? Rather than the obvious, somewhat cliche answers involving family and friends, I encourage you to be a bit more thoughtful and creative--for example, name a specific friend or family member and write about why you're grateful they're in your life.
Or go a completely different route, and choose something that many of us may not have even realized was a blessing (such as object that makes your life easier). Whatever you mention, if you want to earn extra credit, be sure to explain why you are thankful.
Please come back periodically to read and comment on each others' posts. I hope these serve as positive reminders to us as we head into what can sometimes be a challenging time of year.
