True Story. My son was born on February 12th his due date was May 4th. Gestational age at birth 28 weeks. He spent nearly 3 months in the NICU and came home on supplemental oxygen. About 6 hours after he was born, I was sitting in my wife's hospital room a doctor called me from the doorway and asked me to step into the hall. I was convinced the doctor was going to tell me our son had died.

The doctor asked to see my hands, looked at the top of my head and she looked at my eyes. I finally asked what was going on, they suspected our son had Down syndrome but because he was so young it wasn't obvious and sometimes characteristics that resemble DS aren't DS and can be ascribed to family traits. Back in 1989 genetic testing was done but it took weeks.

Long story short. He does have Down syndrome and he'll be 31 years old in February. I'm thankful everyday

/my daughter and me goofing around at sunrise.
///Block Island, RI

My middle daughter is a sophomore in college. Today, on her way home for Thanksgving break, she was stopped for a red light when a tractor trailer behind her did not. It knocked her car into the intersection and demolished it. I am happy to report that she is ok. Her car is totaled but it protected her likes its supposed to. I have a lot to be thankful for tonight, from the engineers who designed the car to absorb the force of an 18 wheeler, to the police who were so nice and helpful, to my wife's coworkers who quickly covered her clients for her as she had to leave immediately for the 3 hours drive to get to my daughter.
My daughter is home safe and sound tonight, and I could not be happier,
My whole family is home and under one roof, and there really is nothing better than that.

My mom and dad, with their great-granddaughter (also, my baby brother's granddaughter). Very thankful my folks were able to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary on the 13th of this month with all of us (myself, my three brothers, my two sisters-in-law, my six nephews, three great-nieces, and a great-nephew).

I'm thankful that I have her around for another year. She's a four-year breast cancer survivor.

/Block Island, RI at sunset

I am thankful that my family has had a happy place we've been able retreat to and enjoy nearly every year since my oldest was a few weeks old. This was taken last summer, at what may be the last family outing we will have there in a while, my oldest just graduated college and will probably be working and living on the west coast next year. I am grateful that we got in one last week in this summer, to enjoy the sunrises and sunsets, and just goof around together. Block Island really is one special and beautiful place, and I am glad we found it, shared it, and loved it.

I love birdwatching, and am thankful that I have a job that gets me outside in different environments every single day, and gives me a chance to indulge my hobby. Probably 70% of the bird photographs I have ever entered in these contests have been taken while working.

I am also thankful for these great big beautiful herons, who tolerate me photographing them to a point.

CSB moment: As a kid I spent summers with a grandmother who lived in Florida on the Gulf Coast. Lots of memories were made on those beaches, but after my grandmother passed, I didn't go back. Until this past Spring when I finally made it down there and took my kids to play on those same beaches and walk out on that same pier (mostly, anyway...they had to rebuild it at some point thanks to a hurricane). So much has changed in the 30 years since I was there last, but this view and the smell of the ocean were still the same. I'm so thankful I was able to take that trip.

I'm thankful for my coloring books, most of which are sweary. Also Bob Ross. They keep me sane.
