What are you most thankful for?

I am happy I survived another year. I seemed to reconnect with some members of my family for the first time in a long time. I picked myself up out of the rubble and kept trying, which isn't always an easy thing to do. I think I am in pretty good health, and I've began to eat healthier. I feel like my energy level and passion for life is beginning to creep upwards again, which seems to be on some uncharted, lengthy cycle for me. I am actually looking forward to seeing what happens in the new year.

I'm thankful that I made it through my first semester of college, and I'm thankful for the organization that is paying for my tuition.

That's great, sluice, I'm very happy for you. ^_^

I'm thankful for my good health this year--I needed the rest. I am also thankful for the love of my friends, old and new, despite my constant distance.

I am happy that I didn't take my own life when Pete Quaife passed away, even though I got little support form my family. It will be different when the other Kinks pass away. I will actually get the support that I need.

I'm thankful that I made it through some very low points this year. I've finally got myself moving in the right direction despite a few bumps in the road. I also really appreciate all the good people of WP for helping to diminish the feeling of being adrift in this world.

I'm thankful I...
- got over my anime obsession and got into live-action films
- got over my fear of the dentist and had my wisdom teeth removed
- made many new friends of all kinds (real, online and imaginary)
- started caring more about my appearance
- had a wonderful 20th birthday party :)

Like the others said, I am glad I just made it through the year. I also stuck with going to college, even though I hated it so much and wanted to quit. I am thankful to Iron Maiden for making such a brilliant album, The Final Frontier.

Happy that I made it through another year, made some good friends, and went reasonably well in my first year of upper high school.

After spending most of Christmas day in the ER with my mum who was suffering chest pains; I'm very grateful to have been able to bring her back home today, as am I for all my other loved ones health and for the roof over my head. Not to forget all of the good things other did for me this past year.

May this coming year be happy and healthy for us all.
