What Are You Thankful For?

With Thanksgiving just over a week away, we've been thinking of all the things we're thankful for (our audience, for one!), and we'd like to hear from you.  What are you thankful for as the holiday season approaches?

There are two ways you can tell us:  either as a comment below or in an iReport if you're at least 13 years old.  We look forward to hearing what you have to say!

    Hi my name is jones and I am tahnkful for god who made kids. Without kids there is no future. I mean every future has more and more new technology right. WIthout kids, adults would be so confused. Us kids help older people. I mean my tells me that they always helps the teachers because, the teachers didn't have technology. So I thank god for all that he did for me.

    Well, I'm not an American, so I don't celebrate Thanksgiving Day.
    But if I have a chance for it, I want to thank to my sister who endure my prank.

    • Braylen

      yeah.. I agree with that. :)

    • Alicia

      Cindy, Thanksgiving IS a holiday that is celebrated in America. But it doesn't mean that you can't celebrate it. Do you not live in this country now? If so, I understand why it would be more difficult if people are selling turkeys and stuffing. But that's only true if you feel that Thanksgiving is only Thanksgiving if one has turkey, etc. We can celebrate Thanksgiving at any time of the year. In fact, there are many people for whom "thanks-giving" is a daily action. This is a good thing. It's amazing how one's attitude changes and is more positive when one gives thanks several times a day. Thanks for your comment! ;)

    I really thank and love my friends who are on the other side of the Earth as me. They tell me their thoughts, opinions, worries, and what's going on at school. When I first came to Korea, I thought we wouldn't ever be able to see each other again, but we Skype and still tell each other everything. I am really thankful for all of the friends I have in Ithaca!

Another reason I am thankful for my family is that they had let me live in a nice place they kept me safe my whole life they had always been there for me when I need them. So that is what I am Thankful for.

    There is a lot that goes on everyday that we don’t think is maybe special or important or even something that we don’t really think needs thanks for. Well occasionally we do need to say thanks for those little things, and that’s why I would like to say thanks to my parents for giving me food, shelter, money, and all the little things they do that they might not think I notice but I do. Like making my bed when I don’t or putting away my clothes. So thank you mom and day , thank you !

    There are a lot of people that don’t realize how lucky they are to have a family, food, a home, clean clothes, and lots more that we are given that some people take advantage of. We should say thanks once in a while for all the things that we receive. There are people out there that are suffering without food, shelter, clothes, or families. This is why I thank my parents and family for giving me everything I need to stay alive and healthy. I am VERY thankful for everything!!! 

    There are so many things in my life to be thankful for; I am an extremely blessed and fortunate person. One of the things I am most thankful for though, is my family, I have a great mom and dad, and two pretty cool brothers. I have an amazing extended family as well and some friends who are like family, too. I am thankful to be healthy and have no troubles concerning my health. I am also thankful to have a home, after Sandy hit and I personally knew a displaced family, it made me reevaluate the fact that I have a home to live in. Sandy also made me think about the other necessities that I take for granted, water, food, clothes, electricity, and all the little things. Another thing that I am grateful for is the chance to get an education; I love to learn and can’t imagine what it would be like to be deprived of this opportunity. There are so many other opportunities in my life as well that I am grateful for, the chance to be on a swim team, take dance lessons, and be a Girl Scout, as well as the chance to practice a religion. I am grateful for my church, and everything it gives to me. I am grateful that I live in a nice place, which has great schools, a good library, and plenty of good places to spend time. I am grateful that my Dad has a good job, and that besides my needs I can have so many of my wants fulfilled. I am indefinitely grateful to live in America, one of the world’s greatest nations. I so am thankful to be alive and, living an amazing life.

    I am thankful for many things. But mostly I am thankful for medicines. This is because I think that it's very important to have medicine. A long time ago we didn’t have medicine and we would die from just a stuffy nose, but as technology gets better and better we are starting to be able to cure diseases such as cancer. When I was in first grade my friend died of cancer. At this moment it would be possible to cure her. I know that as technology will rise each year so will my thankfulness.

    I am thankful for an education, which would include the friends I've made, the teachers that are teaching well, and most importantly, the skills I am learning. I know very well that this will help my future.

    I am thankful for living in a free country, the declaration of idependence, my free agency, new news everyday, people in the world, people who say the news, my family, books, deoderant, air, trees, technology, cameras, the presidents, time, limits, rules, a house, parents, food, water, a healthy body, school, and many more things, but without most of these things, we wouldn't be like we were today. without air, we would've been made differently to where we don't need air to live.

    I am thankful for friends and enimies. Because if you had no enimies, you would be overwhelmed, and without enimies you would really have no friends. If you really think about it if everyone is your friend, no one would really be your friend. It's kind of like if everyone was a superhero there isn't really any superheros because if there isn't anyone to save, then no one isn't really a superhero. It's the kind of the same thing with friends, if everyone was your friend you wouldn't have any enimies. Without any enimies, you wouldn't have any friends.
