Happy Thanksgiving! What Are You Thankful For?

by Maria Lianos-Carbone

Happy Thanksgiving!

As you celebrate with your family and friends, you may be reflecting upon your blessings and be grateful.

We have asked the 5 Minutes For Mom team and some of our guest contributors to share what they are thankful for.

I’m, of course, most thankful for my sweet girls and supportive (and sometimes insane) husband, along with my amazing group of brilliant friends. I’m also thankful for the opportunity to work in an ever changing and growing field with professionals who push to me to be better, work harder, and be smarter – while also providing me with the ability to help support my family from the comfort of my home.  ~ Amanda Henson @HighImpactMom

I am thankful for the opportunities & friendships that have come my way especially these past months & thankful for the love of my family who support & love me as I chase my dreams Wishing everyone a Blessed & Happy Thanksgiving!  ~ Ellie Augustin @ElliesWorld


As a book reviewer, it’s my joy to share my love of reading with others. My teenage daughter is a fellow bookworm, but even though he learned to read early, it didn’t seem like my son was going to follow in our footsteps. It took until 3rd grade, but this year he truly loves reading. I am thankful for the books that have drawn him in and the authors who create them. ~ Jennifer Donovan @5M4B

I am thankful for my family’s good health.  ~ Suzanne Davis @bebehblog

I am thankful that I have been blessed with a wonderful family that has supported and encouraged me in my journey as a blogger! ~ Jennifer Quillen  @TheRebelChick

This Thanksgiving I am thankful for time spent together, a meal to gather around, and a job for my husband to provide for our family. We are simply beyond blessed and have received grace far greater than we deserve. ~ Wendy Wright  @ChoosingLoveAZ

Being injury-free!  ~ Dave Smith

I am thankful for my family and friends. They support me and help me every single day. I am also thankful for my health and the health of my family. I have two beautiful children and a wonderful husband and a beautiful place to live. ~ Christy Laverty @imfreckles

I’m thankful for the health of my children and my husband – without it, nothing else would matter. ~Maria Lianos-Carbone @amotherworld

I am so thankful to have such a wonderful and loving family. I am blessed to have teenagers that are respectable and so mature for their age, and I am very thankful for a husband that is Godly and loves me with all his heart and soul. ~ Jennifer Sikora,  @jennifer_sikora

I’m so incredibly thankful for my two sweet girls Julia and Sophia. It’s hard to believe they are 7 and 5 years old now. After struggling with infertility for so many years, it’s beyond my wildest dreams to have two wonderful girls who love each other and play together constantly. I’m blessed in many other ways too, but they certainly top the list. ~ Susan Caretto @5MinutesForMom and @susancarraretto

My gratitude list could go on and on — I am so blessed! But at the top of it are my fabulous children, Jackson and Olivia. They are passionate, fun, and make me laugh even more than they make me crazy. ~ Janice Croze @5MinutesForMom and @janicecroze

Now we’d love to hear from YOU – our amazing readers!

What are you thankful for?

Incidentally, I also wrote a blog post about what I am thankful for today. :) But aside from that, I am also thankful for my family and friends and all the blessings that God is sending our way.

Thankful for every day I am privileged enough to homeschool my children. I count it as a privilege and a blessing. My husband works really hard for me to be able to do what I do.
