It's the Thanksgiving Holiday tomorrow in the US. This has prompted me to think about the things that I'm thankful for; there's too many to name. Among them are 1) the opportuity to work to improve my diet, fitness and health, and 2) my MFP friends who've been a great support to me.

What are you grateful for?

    I'm thankful for time. The time I have with my family and friends, the time I have spent experiencing new things, and the time I have left to do everything I've wanted to do :)

    atmosphere... and gravity... without which... ALL this would NOT be possible... and I am either grateful for the coincidences that caused them.. or for the creator that made them... which begs the question.. if God crated everything.. who created him/her/it?

    Grateful that I was born in New Zealand.
    I will probably die of old age before the expected zombie apocalypse.
