I was recently on a few blogs that I follow on a regular basis and they had done in one form or another a list of things they were "THANKFUL" for.  I  keep a journal and put my "praises" and "thankful" things in it daily but I thought it might be fun to ask my family about what they are thankful for too-so here are the
