I will go first, During this pandemic my family has stayed health, no one has been really ill. Although last year we lost three friends to it. I am thankful I wake up every day . 2 years ago in Oct I was in the ICU with bleeding on the brain and blood pressure of 198. over something. They called the family and the red cross sent my son and his family home from Germany. They were planning Brain surgery when as quick as it started it stopped. Last year I had my hip replaced  best thing I ever did. Many know that I show dogs, I had made a goal and bucket list as you just never know. There are only three big shows that are invitation only Crufts in England, Royal Canine where they invite the top 10 owner handlers to complete for National owner handler where I believe the top prize is $10,000.00. And then Westminster kennel club dog show where the top 5 in every breed are invited to enter before any other. in order to enter Westminster your dog must be a Champion. My dog and I have been invited to both the Royal in Orlando where he was the number 5 Chow Chow. And then to Westminster where he is the number 3 Chow chow. We have decided to go to Westminster in Jan. This has been a dream and goal for as long as I can remember.    

 

 

 

 

 

Then this is his daughter who is up and coming she finished her championship at 8 months So I have a lot to be Thankful for.

I’m thankful that me and my family are healthy. That we were able to maintain our income during the pandemic and that we’re still able to enjoy each other.

I am so thankful for my family. I am thankful for the lessons learned during the pandemic. I am also thankful for the many blessings of the past year. Although my husband was out of work for a year we never went lacking for anything.

Thankful that I, at least physically, survived working in healthcare during the worst of the pandemic. Thankful for my family and that my elderly parents are quite healthy 77 and 79 year olds. I have no children of my own so I’m Thankful that I have been able to help others, whether it be angel trees or senior trees. It makes me so happy that I am financially able to give someone a nice Christmas that otherwise might not have one.

I'm thankful for my supporting and wonderful wife and daughter. I'm thankful for all the blessings in life we have been given, the good times and the seemingly hard times. I'm happy we have been able to help others in their times of need.

I am thankful that my husband's cancer drugs are currently working at the moment. I hope he's not too sick to enjoy the holidays.

I am thankful number one to still be here. I had covid pretty bad and was hospitalized for 12 days 2 days after last Christmas. I was on oxygen for months and out of work. I am so glad The Lord let me stay for a while longer. Second I am thankful for my family. My loving wife and kids mean the world to me. So many things we stress about really do not mean a thing.

I am thankful we were able to move this year. Several people I know have been trying to find a house and haven't been able to. We are in a better area, have a house we love, but also we were able to pay off all our credit cards so our monthly bills are much smaller now. That is a big relief and makes a lot of things easier.
