A different kind of thanks

So here we are. Thanksgiving week and taking time to slow down and reflect on things we have to be thankful for: Our Freedom, the people, places and things is our lives, etc.

What is something a bit out of the ordinary that you are thankful for? Not just your bike, your job, your girl, or your X-Box.... But, something really special or different.

Im most thankful for my wife, kids and family.
Second to that is my friends both close to me and the ones I've met here on the dotnet. Proud to be a part of this family.

I know you said not your job, but I am really thankful for the opportunity to go to school and get a degree, and actually have the chance at a job when graduating.

Big deal to mean since im the first person in my entire family to get a higher education.

I am thankful to be in good enough health to race motorcycles. There are a lot of people out there who cannot do what we do because of various factors. The thrill and joy that accompany racing a motorcycle at high speeds and huge lean angles is not comparable to anything else on the planet. Just the ability to be able to get on the bike and ride is more than enough thanks for me.

Having the pleasures of being content with no matter what life throws at me is what i am thankful for

Agree with Moe. Thankful for the ability to be thankful, and have a humble heart for the things we do have rather than complaining we don't have more.

Thankful for my ability to read and answer the question how the OP asked it NOT how everyone else seems to be doing.

I didn't feel like that was something special to be thankful for until I realized no one else got it.

Thank full to be cancer free!

Seriously pretty thankful to be able to live in a place where I can enjoy the outdoors.

Also the fact that I teach some pretty awesome 8th graders.

Thankful for the ability to occasionally stop and not only recognize, but embrace the glorious imperfections of life, and smile knowing that although it might not be a perfect world, I am happy to be a part of it and look forward to the next challenge...

...and I'm also thankful for spell check
