At our elementary school in York, Maine each and every student and staff proclaimed their gratitude on the “WALL OF GRATITUDE” . The students in grade 2 through 4 expressed gratitude for family, friends, their pets, a roof over their heads, their teachers, and the New England Patriots.

I’m thankful for a pediatric dentist who has a calm, caring bedside manner, who recognizes that mom holding your hand is as important as painkillers, and who provides great pain-free dental skills.  I was privy to some pediatric dental sad stories today and am feeling really grateful for our wonderful dentist.

I am grateful that my tween daughter still talks to me when its really important.  I am grateful that mercury is no longer in retrograde - its been a bumpy few weeks - but we survived.

I’m grateful for Dr. Cameron,  who replaced my husband’s 80 year-old hip, and I’m thankful for the other docs and nurses and physical therapists, who are helping my husband recuperate.

I’m thankful for those who have been there for me when I didn’t think I could persevere and for every time I am able to help someone else not just hang on strong, but go forth to continue the process.

I’m grateful I’m with my family for the holidays.

I am thankful that I have waken up to another day to spend it with my loved ones. Some sleep and not see another dawn. Thank You!

I am so grateful for my 5-year-old daughter. She is so good with her little brothers, so good with her sick grandpa. So agreeable during this time of chaos and disorganization.

I’m happy that we will be surrounded by family for the holidays—2 grandparents, 4 siblings, 4 spouses, 11 nieces and nephews. That’s a lot of turkey! I guess I’m thankful for Costco, too.
