Periods 1 & 2, Post 11: What You're Thankful For

Hello, everybody. I hope everybody is enjoying their long weekend. :-)

That said, I'd like to take a break from text-related responses this week. With Thanksgiving upon us, I'd like for us all to remember what the holiday really is supposed to be: not a day for gorging oneself with food, but a reminder to remember the many blessings in our lives, for which we should be grateful.

Therefore, please take this opportunity to say what you're thankful for in your lives.

This will be the last blog post for the second marking period.


  1. Thanksgiving to me doesn't mean that the whole comes together and have one big meal once a year, but its the time to show how grateful we all are. Like me, im grateful for just being alive today and having my family with me. Thankful for having a roof over my head, clothes on my back and food on my plate.

  2. Thanksgiving was great i devoured that turkey lol. Thanksgiving this really means to me that i should give god thanks for him spear me my life and for me being around my family members together once a year and actually having a good. Oh believe me i had a good time, but that not the point. Im thankful for my mother, my father, my life for the people who killed the turkey, for the cook who made me my thanksgiving dinner, thankful for having a awesome,funny,crazy english teacher.. :)

  3. Thanksgiving isn't a time only about stuffing yourself with food until you can't walk, it's also about a time to realize how grateful everyone is. I'm thankful for my entire family. I love them so much i couldn't live without them.

  4. I am very thankful , for everything that i have in my life . My education , my famiy , my clothes , everything . Thanksgiving is a time when you can really sit down and appreciate everyone and everything you have in your life . Yes , you can pray and thank god everyday but the time to celebrate thanks and really show it is on this day .

    Thanksgiving to me means a day where everyone admires the fact of living. I'm thankful for everything that has made me and pushed me to be a strong person that i am today. I am thankful for all the support everyone's giving me to finish school and in my dream of playing basketball. I'm also thankful for having a family who cares for me 110%. And I'm most thankful for both of my parents pushing me to success because without them i wouldn't be the person that i am today.

  6. Thanksgiving to me is a time when families come togethger and talk about all the good times we had with eachother, and how thankful we are for each other.I am thankful for my family most of all because even though they may get on my nerves sometimes they are always there for me,my friends because i can always go to them for adviece whenn i dont know what to do if im in a problem and last god beacause he always makes me take another breath and step.If it wasn't for him people woudn't be here today.

    well the people that I am thankful is my family, the reason is because they support me in everything. Like Akeeba said "she's thankful for the man who killed the turkey" well I am not, because the turkey deserves to live.(even thou I ate turkey). Well I enjoyed spending time with my family, they're the best that a small person like me could ever ask for.

  9. To me Thanksgivings is time share and be grateful what you have, but to me i dont have grateful for much, im grateful that I am still dead soul person mean no heart, but im grateful at least something interesting happen over the 4 day break. I got sleep more and relax at home.
