Continued - What Are You Thankful For?

Megan Goodwin (Lakeport, CA) - I


am thankful for the opportunity to volunteer with three Marine veterans (Rob
Jones Journey & Pax2Pax: The Johnny
Strong Charity Ride for Child's Play) in
their charitable bike rides across the
country. It opened up opportunities for
me to meet some wonderful Americans
and see how a small group can make
big impacts when we pull together for a
greater cause. I saw the kindness, and
giving nature of our small towns; along
with the willingness to help support
our young veteran communities. Little
did I know that volunteering with these
brave men would change my life forever.
I traveled, I found love, and a new job
helping wounded and injured veterans
in a larger organization. I am thankful
for our veterans and active duty military, because without them none of this
would have ever enriched my life!

my grandson, life that I have and that
im still alive.

Samantha T. (Liberty Center, OH) My husband recovering from his bone

recently- no one was hurt only replace-

able things were stolen.

OH) - My Wonderful Family and Moving

Lyndsey Neal (Montpelier, OH) - I


am thankful for my fiance Ryan Stewart. January will be for 3 years now and
I couldn't be more proud of him. He
has over come so many odds and even
though he had been fighting his own
battles he still took the time to step up
and be a father to my two children with
no questions asked. He has shown me
what a true man is and what an ideal
partner is. God truly blessed me when
he put him in my life, he is my Rock
when I am weak, my Voice when I can
not speak and my Eyes when I can not
see. I will be forever thankful for having
him in my life.

Debbie Warner (Ventura, CA) - My


daughter, grandson, former husband,
friends and family. They give me a reason to smile daily and to also count my
blessings as I have so much more than
so many others. I would like to also
say I am Thankful for our servicemen
and women who have and are giving so
much to our country, they do without,
missing their families to keep us safe. I
appreciate their sacrifice so much and
want them to know they are forever in
my prayers. Thank you to Denny Salisbury for his service, and for his dedication to several wounded vet programs.

Michelle Kolbe (Montpelier, OH) - I've


so many things to be thankful for this

seemed to not be one..I'm so thankful
that He has never let go of my hand.
I'm thankful that I was given a wonderful Mother and Father that instilled in
me empathy and a hard work ethic. I'm
thankful for the brothers and sisters I
was given and the fun we had as children. I'm thankful for my children Zach

Deanna Sellers (Winter Garden, FL)


- I am thankful for the beautiful children The Lord has blessed me with, who
have taught me never ending patience
and love, and the great value of children
with special needs. Two of my three
darlings are autistic and my youngest
is not. My four year old daughter who
is neuro-typical has shown never ending love and absolute acceptance and
understanding of her special needs siblings. They have taught her things that
could be learned in no other way but by
their special views of the world, and she
has amazingly taught them everything
from how to pretend play to the value
of experiencing the world in ways other
than their own (and vice-a-versa they
have taught her how to see the world
through their eyes). Praise God for the
way He made them, special and unique,
beautiful in every way!

Teri McPhail (Graceville, FL) - Thankful for a nearly perfect childhood spent
mostly in West Unity. There are very few
bad memories. I have the best aunts
and uncles (hi aunt Mae! Aunt Jean and
uncle Coy! Aunt Doris! Aunt Joan!), best
cousins (to many to name... You know
who you are!), and best friends! Thanks
for the memories! Thankful for living on
'the farm.' I miss home... And snow.
Then, there's thankfulness for 5 great
kids and probably adding 2 new in laws
to the mix in a year. So blessed!

Steve La Londe Jr (Edgerton, OH) - I


am thankful for the support of my family and friends who have helped me grow
and prosper into person I am today. I
love and appreciate each an everyone
of you both present and passed. Thank
You All !!

Crista Wortkoetter (Edon, OH) - I am


thankful for my friends and family because I know that no matter what happens, they will always be there for me.

Wendi Roose (Bowling Green, OH) My family, of course, but especially my


grandson Aidenn.

Anne Bischoff (Toledo, OH) - My family. Its the most important thing in my
life.

Terri Nemire (Montpelier, OH) - I am


thankful for my family! No matter how
dysfunctional we all can be at times in
the end I know we will always be there
for one another and this year I am also
thankful that our daughter has moved
back home and we just become grandparents to a beautiful baby girl.
