We'd like to wish everyone a very happy Thanksgiving this week. It's been a tough year for many folks in this country, but I still see people expressing gratitude for what they have every single day. That must be a part of our national DNA if you think about the first Thanksgiving. The original settlers were cold, and almost always hungry. They died of dreadful diseases that don't even exist anymore (smallpox). Every day was a struggle to stay alive. And yet, with the help of their Native American hosts, they were able to celebrate and give thanks almost 400 years ago.
What are you thankful for this holiday season? Tell us on the BlogHer opinion poll.
