Day 19: I am thankful for my cat Mercy. When I am lonely, sad, over-whelmed, etc., I just take a moment and look at her or pet her and I begin to feel better. It is amazing how animals can make a person feel better.

Day 11: I am thankful for all who have fought and continue to fight for our country. I am also thankful for those who are considering joining a branch of the Armed Forces. It is a total act of selflessness and I am thankful that they fought, continue to fight, and will fight for our freedoms. Those freedoms being what makes America the country that it is. It really is the land of the free because of the brave. So to those who fought, are fighting, and will fight....Thank you! For the families of those....thank you too! You have also sacrificed for our country.

It is November 1st and we all know what that means, it is now time to write what we are thankful for daily. Well here is mine...
