for a warm house, food to eat, and all the people who help me through the storm? That includes each of you. And you?

The love of the wonderful woman I married 42 years ago. She’s different now, but she loves me still, even though she sort of thinks I am now her father. On a good day, when she wakes up, she will tell me several dozen times, “I love you Daddy”.  I will ever be thankful for this.

Family (immediate), friends (I don't get to see too much of these last couple years), security, roof over my head and food to eat.  Not sure about much else.

No ambition for celebration tomorrow.  Told kids last week that they can go to friends' houses if they get invited.  Quiet night at home with my wife.

Best wishes to all, Greg

Thankful for my husband who reminds me that I am strong and that I can make it through this storm that I never imagined myself in. And he will always be there for me. And you??

I'm thankful that I still have some energy.  I can see, I can eat, I can feel, I can walk-run, talk, yell!  I can communicate and have means to get by.

Everything. And thankful for God.

And you?

So many things to be thankful for, but just off the top of my head, I would say I am thankful for discovering some wonderful people here. Thankful that in spite of Barbara's faulty memory, she never fails to tell me she loves me. Thankful that I have been blessed with relatively good health, which enables me to care for Barbara. Thankful for a few good friends. Thankful for my faith.

So thankful for my supportive husband and four wonderful kids, for good friends, food to eat, a roof over our heads. Also thankful that God is carrying me through this journey with mom, knowing that it's making me better and taking me outside of myself. Thankful for mom who still tells me she loves me and gives us kisses every day. Thankful to find this group of caregivers to share in this journey and help me figure things out. Happy Thanksgiving!
