So how about you, what are you all thankful for??
I am also thankful for all the support everyone gives us over here.
Can't wait to get back to the states and start another coaster season!
I am thankful that our country's leaders in Congress are finally starting to demand a plan from this administration for what exactly they want to do with Iraq. I'm sorry, but "Stay the course" is insufficient especially when the current course has led to over 2,000 American deaths and countless wounded. I am also thankful that my cousin is not included in the above count.
I am thankful that the great state of North Carolina has been so generous by seamlessly integrating my family members displace from NO by Katrina. They have stepped up where I belive the federal govenrment failed. (And as a U of Illinois grad, it pains me to say anything good about North Carolina ;))
But most importantly, I am thankful for a message I heard in church the other day. In the song "Be Grateful" there is the line:
Be grateful, because someone else would love to be in your shoes.
Those are powerful words. Even if (for example) my cable goes out and I cant watch the games today in HD, there's someone who would love to just have my TV. Even if my boss is stressing me out and I feel frustrated at work, someone would love to have my job. Even if I was pissed off and arguing with my mother, there is someone who lost their mother who would love to hear her nagging.
So I am most thankful for perspective.
lata, jeremy (Happy T-day!)
Northern California now has an "almost" year round park.

Im Thankfull that my parents are finally divoriced.
Yes, At first it was painful and the life will never be the same thoughts ruled the day when it was first mentioned.
But after over a year of trying to keep them both sane, Giving one or the other a place to stay so they wouldn't be in each others hair and 5 court appearances.
It was all settled in about 10 minutes with a deal struck on the assets :)
Now we can get back to important things, Like the Friends Im thankful to ride coasters with and of course VOYAGE.
Chuck, also thankful for Moosh moments but have never personally been Mooshed.
i'm thankful for many things. My kids are healthy and happy. I;m working at a good company.
and grateful this boards still up and running.
The point of Thanksgiving no matter what religion you are (or if you're an atheist) is to give thanks to a supreme being for being blessed with everything around you.
Of course it also helps to thank those around you :)
And 2Hostyl, I do agree with you to an extent, my political views differ from many others on this site. "Staying the course" isn't really so much an option anymore since we've been there for nearly 3 years now. We're starting to see some sort of suggestion from Condi Rice to start "weening" the Iraq military off of the dependance on US troops.
So stay the course ;)
I am as well. Im at school taking University science and my teacher as well as students are deeply concerned right now about the avion bird flu. I know I shouldn't dwell on the negative but im seriously worried when it's getting worse. We had a class discussion about the flu and it's symptoms and we concluded that the last thing the world needs right now is a worldwide pandemic. I hope it passes by and everything is O.K. The lord has blessed me with good food, fresh air, the roof over my head (heyisn'tthatrob), clean water and my health and for these things I am thankful.

You should be thankful I didn't catch you. ;)
I'm thankful that I was able to purchase a new car in August when my old minivan died.
I'm thankful that I have a new job I start on Monday that will be enough to cover the bills.
I'm thankful for a lot more, but if I listed everything here, it'd be a very long post.
