Happy Thanksgiving PCHblog Readers – What Are You Thankful For?

Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays. Mostly because it’s one of the few times every year that my family gathers from all across the United States to spend a few days in each other’s company. Like most holidays, tradition plays a big part. Each year, my family spends the day cooking our thanksgiving meal. Some of us are in charge of the dessert, some help my mom cook the Turkey and sides, while others make the last minute trips to the grocery store when an essential ingredient goes missing. Then we usually end up eating late as we wait for the stubborn Turkey to finish cooking in the oven, which is fine because it’s gives us more time to catch up with each other.

After filling our stomachs, we always spend time thinking about and sharing what we are thankful for. I always find it interesting that everyone around the table has a long list of things to be thankful for, even if they have been going through a tough time. There’s no question that this year has been especially tough for a lot of us with the poor economy and high jobless rates. But in the end we all have something to be thankful for. For many, it’s the food on the table, or the friends and family members that are always there, or just the dreams of winning that we discuss often here on the PCHblog. A few people can even be thankful for winning a prize from PCH! Thinking about what we’re thankful for seems simple, but we often forget to just that as we race to get errands and work done.

 So with that I wanted to ask all of you what you’re thankful for. It can be big, small, simple, complicated or anything. If you feel like sharing with the rest of the blog readers, go ahead and add it to the comments. If not, just keep it in the back of your mind as you go about your Thanksgiving Day. 

Happy Thanksgiving PCH blog readers. Thanks for reading our posts and for sharing your stories with us!

Frank @ PCH

I am thankful to be alive, and for having a roof over my head, although it’s a small apartment, but it’s all I can afford. I’m so thankful to god, because I use to be homeless with my children a few years ago. Thank You! Love Daria.

I have too many to thank for this Thanksgiving. I thank God I have good health which is wealth, loyal friends and relatives, roof over my head, eat delicious meals three times a day and keep smiling during crisis and getting stronger facing challenges in life. I also have to thank Dave Sayer and the whole PCH staff to give me the opportunity to be a part of their winners circle. i am proud to be one but today someone told me he could not find my blog so he can post a comment to it. Can you tell me how to guide him. Thanks I appreciate it. I wish all and everyone to have a grand and blissful Thanksgiving. May God bless all of us.

I am thankful for God’s grace and His love. I have the privilege of living in America, had a husband make it back safely from two tours of duty to Iraq and Afghanistan, and to be able to have the freedom to access PCH’s many websites that not only heighten my chances to win a prize, but give consumers and web browsers an incentive to use websites such as PCH search and win. Even though I’ve never won, I know some people do and that’s just a blessing to have a chance at winning. Happy Thanksgiving PCH Staff- Dallas, TX

Even though I’m not able to have a traditional Thanks Giving with my family. My family has taught me that giving thanks should be more than just words but it’s an act that I must perform to, for and with others who are not as fortunate. I am thankful for such strong loving and giving people in my life by the grace of Jesus. People that never met me just open their hearts to me miles away from home. Sometimes, I feel like I never left home through some of the people I’ve met here in the Carolinas. I live for this every day to know that God exist in all of us and that some take advantage of this fully. To repay this forward by a kind gestures, hug, smile, laughs or if possible through things. THIS I’M TRULY GREATFUL FOR. Thank you! GOBBLE GOBBLE!!

I am always thankful for having such a great family and a roof over My head…because there are so so many others out there that are alone and cold. One thing I CAN NOT AND NEVER WILL UNDERSTAND IS,,WHY ARE THERE CHILDREN OUT THERE DIEING OF STARVATION ? Honest to GOD, I can not figure that out…other then that We turn our heads away and say “thats not our problem”…as We stuff & shove trukey in our selfish mouths. NOPE , THERE SHOULD NOT BE “ONE”STARVING CHILD OPON THIS EARTH OF “OURS”. Oh I know that there are good poeple out there,,and to those few I wish a very happy Thanksgiving day and great life there after. John

Many people look forward to Thanksgiving as a time of food preparation and having the family all together again, they talk about the passing year of those happy and sad occasions – then this day is gone and now they are planning for next year.

A i grow older Thanksgiving Day has another meaning for me, I try to thank the Lord for my many blessings, HE takes care of my needs, not my wants.
I am thankful for my health : that includes legs that get me up and down, hands that are able to feed and dress myself, eyes to see the beauty that God has provided us with, and to hear the beautiful little birds sing their songs.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone..
this is what this day means to me. Phil. 4:13
