Tell Us: What Are You Thankful For This Thanksgiving?

Help create a community collection of gratitude this holiday season.

Thanksgiving is here!

I want to know what the users of Northfield Patch are thankful for this year.

Tell me and your neighbors in the comment section below.

I'll start:

  • I'm thankful, that after two years, I'm still privileged to be the editor of Northfield Patch and help keep the community informed.
  • I'm thankful that my daughter, Lucy, turns 10 months old on Saturday. It's been a great challenge so far and I feel blessed to have her in my life.
  • I'm thankful for my wife, Ariel. She's a tremendous mother and wonderful wife. I'm thankful for her patience and understanding when I leave the house at 5 a.m. to chase down an armed robbery story, stay up until 3 a.m. for elections or randomly disappear because there's a fire or car wreck. Those are just a few obvious examples. I'll never fully know the daily demands of being married to me, but I feel incredibly fortunate to have a wife who's up to the challenge.

Today I am thankful for a free country...one that allows me to read great stories on Northfield Patch, while spending the day with my wife who l love after cooking her breakfast. I am thankful for the freedoms we have to enjoy this holiday as we enjoy them all. Today I am truly thankful for all my fellow comrades who have since the founding of this country have protected our freedoms, as well as the men and women who today will not be home with their families because they are deplyoed around the world defending our freedoms.
