    On this great Thanksgiving, share some people you are really thankful for!


    I am thankful for my family. I am thankful for Nifty- Because if it wasn't for him, we wouldn't have this GREAT forum! I wouldn't know what to do if I didn't have all of you from BYC. [​IMG] Thanks SO much for this wonderful forum, Nifty! I hope you see this. [​IMG]

I am thankful for my ladies..who give me eggs every day that helped me bake for our families thanksgiving feast! [​IMG]

    I am so thankful for my mother and father. if it was not for my Dad, I would not have any of my beautiful animals I have today.
    I am so happy to have a loving family, and a new dog! he is the first dog we ever had and I love him so much.

    two of my hens got very sick this past year, and I Thank God for him saving them.

    We lost our beloved orange cat Sam a few weeks ago . He was hit my a car [​IMG]
    I am so happy the Lord blessed us by giving Sam a happy loving lhome with us. I rejoice today, he is now with Christ and I will see Sam again. [​IMG]

    Well , I'm thankful for DW. I have no idea what I'd do with out her. I would not weigh so much but other than that life is good. We've survived 35 years with each other and through many trials.

    Golden -- it's not been a good year for cats here either. Puff got hit by a car and Stubby had to be put down. Still you have the right attitude. Seems rather ungrateful to be sad when you consider all the shelters of unloved animals and the joy we were given by ours.


    I am also thankful for you the members of BYC, who understand my chicken psychosis. Not judging me when I say things like "I like to smell my chickens". They always have a clean chickeny smell. or that I kiss them on the mouth. Not really, but I do hug them. Much better than any blood pressure pill IMO.

    So I hope everyone has a nice day and I appreciate your tolerance, and advice. [​IMG]

    We have so much to be thankful for . It would be my wonderful loving wife that I simply adore . She is my best friend , and just a wonderful person . We were best friends long before we
    ever became romantic . She is a lady in every sense of the word and I am thankful for some of the good people on BYC . Especially those on the Louisiana thread .

    I am thankful for my husband of nearly 20 years who loves me and my randomness.

    I am thankful for my son, whose 7 years of joy and enthusiasm have brought untold love, joy, and patience into our home.

    I am thankful for my son's birth mother who chose us, out of hundreds of highly qualified families, to raise her son as our own.

    I am thankful for my 4 year old daughter, my curly-haired gift of nature, sent to us from Heaven.

    We are a family, so we periodically drive each other nuts, but the nuts are just a sprinkle on top of a big ol' hot fudge sundae!

    Happy Thanksgiving to all the great BYC members. You've been a wealth of knowledge. I am so thankful for making it through another tough year. My DH and I have been unemployed for what seems forever. Thanks to my family and friends for moral support and a shoulder to lean on. We couldn't of made it without you.

    I am thankful for my kind and hard working dh.

    Thankful for my mom who is always there for me.

    Thankful for my well behaved kids.

    Thankful for my 2 good friends even though I see them but once a year.

    Thankful that as a woman I was born in the US and not some other country where even today horrible(IMO) things are done just because you are a woman.Thank you again mom for escaping your own country on foot and getting political asylum in the US! How different all our lives would be had you never taken that risk.

    Thankful I have BYC and the sister sites to post on and read daily!
