Sure, it's almost time to eat... and eat and eat, but before the feast begins, Thanksgiving is also the season for recognizing what we're grateful for in our lives.
I am thanks to have two wonderful, healthy children, a loving husband and best friend, a supportive family and a warm house to come home to, or work from everyday.
Over the past da or so, several readers shared wonderful stories of thanks through the Vernon Patch Facebook page. Here is what they wrote:

Special thanks to Make a Wish, St. Jude's Children's Hospital, and our friends and family at The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!"
