I am thankful first for all God has done for me, even the things that are painful. Through them I have grown. I am thankful to all the wonderful men and women in our Armed Forces, for stepping out and putting themselves in harm's way to defend us. Because of them our country remains free. I am thankful for all the people (too many to name) who have had an impact on my life. Because of them I am who I am. And I am very thankful to and for my family, all of whom I love very much. I am blessed.
