I know my son is very thankful for his sister and for all the fun moments that he shares with her.

I am grateful for my friends who have helped me in a difficult, drawn-out decision process!

I am grateful to my inner voice, no matter how far I stray from my goals in life, it keeps on bringing me back to a state of bliss.

I am so very grateful for my son.

I am grateful for my children’s playfulness and silliness.  I am grateful for making time to talk with a friend on the phone.  I am grateful the weather is warming up.

I’m thankful for the way my husband runs the house since I am in school right now as well as working. Thank you!

I am sooo grateful for my wonderful parents who were able to take my son on a great Spring Break trip to San Diego because I had to stay at home and work.

I’m happy we booked tickets for our family reunion in September.  I can’t wait to see everyone.

Every week we post a photo submitted by one of our readers along with all the happy and thankful comments gathered throughout the week.
