26 Foods I'm Thankful For

I’m thankful for so many things in my life, but I’m thankful for Chris and Mason most of all. I’m thankful that we have each other. I can’t imagine my life without them. I’m thankful that we have such wonderful family and friends. I’m thankful that Chris and I both have jobs that we love. I’m thankful we have a safe place to live. And I’m thankful that we always have plenty to eat. So many people go hungry, and it breaks my heart. In honor of the day when we give thanks, often by sharing a large meal with the people we love, here are the 26 foods that I’m thankful for, one for each letter of the alphabet (from a “What Are You Thankful For” game a therapist taught me to help me heal after my beloved grandfather died). I took a little license — a couple of letters stand for consumables, not really food, but you get the picture. What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?
