Mine are as follows:

1. - I am thankful for our brave troops who are the best in all the world.

2. - I am thankful that our country dodged two fatal bullets in a row in not electing Al Gore and John Kerry for POTUS. (Unfortunately we took a hit for 8 years of Clinton - a scare which may never heal)

3. - I am thankful for the Robinsons who founded FR and all the great freepers who have made my life worth living in the midst of al the liberal mind manipulation and corruption.

4. - I am thankful that I am not a liberal and never will be.

Guess I'd better leave some thankfuls for you guys.

I'm thankful that the Dallas Cowboys decided to stink early so that they'll get a draft choice only behind San Franscisco and Miami.

That I live in a country where politcal dissenters no matter how rediculous they are not dragged off and shot or imprisoned, but are mocked and humiliated publicly like the goofballs they are.

Lunch!

1. Cut out aluminum foil in desired shapes.
2. Arrange the turkey in the roasting pan, position the foil carefully.
3. Roast according to your own recipe. Sprinkle paprika in your basting sauce to really give your bird a deep tan.
4. Serve, and watch your guests' faces.

Rather than P.E.S.T. (which I had in the 90's), I am afflicted with O.T.A.R. That's Overwhelming Thankfulness And Relief regarding the elcetion results.

I am most thankful to my loving Heavenly Father who gets me through each day.

I am thankful for FreeRepublic, FOX News, Rush Limbaugh, and our great Christian Radio station, KJIL.

I am thankful to be an American with rights that have been protected by our outstanding troops. I am thankful for the opportunity to homeschool my two boys- who are awesome! I am thankful for my handsome husband.

My heart overflows with thankfulness for all our Veterans, esp. our Vietnam Vets who fought for the defeat of John Kerry and defended America once again.

I am thankful for the love of my daughter, son, and son in law, my wonderful fiance (Common Tator), my family and my friends.

I am thankful for Free Republic, as I met my soulmate here. It has also been a great sounding board for me, and for the first time in my life, I feel like I have a voice, politically.

I am thankful that our great President was re-elected. I am also thankful for his wonderful wife, children, and the rest of the Bush family, as well as the Cheney family, and all the others in the administration.

I am thankful for our brave soldiers, who are fighting against the terrorists in Iraq.

I am thankful for John O'Neil and the Swiftboat Vets, and all the other Veterans, especially my family members, both living and dead, for their service to our country. I am VERY grateful for having known my dear friend, James William "Billy" Lunsford, who gave his life in Vietnam by coming to the aid of a begging child.

And finally, I am thankful for having 48 years with the best daddy in the world. He passed on May 25th, but his giving heart and kind spirit will be with me forever.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL MY FReeper FRIENDS.

I am thankful that three years ago, on Thanksgiving Day, we became a FAMILY . We adopted our beloved son from South Korea. It is hard to believe that three years have passed since the day his wonderful foster mother lovingly placed him in our arms in that tiny agency office in Seoul.
I thank God every day that our son's birthmother was strong enough to give him life and brave enough to let him go. I can never repay her for her sacrifice. All I can do is try to be the best mommy I can be to the son she set forth into the bullrushes. The little boy who would become the son of my heart...MY son.
Thanksgiving will always be very special for us. God's reminder that we have so very much to be thankful for.
