I had this posted in the Jesus blessed my life this week thread, but I felt sort of like I was crashing a church function. I like the idea of saying what you're thankful for . . . that's always a nice, positive thing. There seems to be some friction over the religious aspect of that thread, so I wanted to start a thread with the same general idea, but that's more inclusive. I'm an atheist myself, but there are many things in life I'm grateful for. As for religious people posting here, I hope they feel perfectly free to say Jesus/Allah/Buddha/Satan/Odin or whoever or whatever has blessed them without feeling attacked, and I hope they'll be equally courteous to the non religious. That being said, I'm thankful for the wonderful doctors who were found for my grandad, for the science that makes their job possible, and for the family members who gathered up enough money for the operation. After four years in a wheelchair, he can now walk . . . with a walker, of course, but that's nothing to sneer at.
