What Are You Thankful For This Year?

As Thanksgiving and the holiday season is upon us, we at Patch are giving thanks and we'd love for you to join us.


The year 2012 has taken many twists and turns in the news and in our lives here at Patch.

When we take a moment to reflect at who and what surrounds us, we realize that there is an abundance to be thankful for.

We are grateful for our friends and families, our neighbors and colleagues. We are thankful to live in the beautiful cities that dot the Peninsula and San Mateo County coastline. And we are very thankful for you - the community we cover daily and for whom Patch would not exist without.

There is so much to be thankful for this holiday season, and we would love for you to share your thoughts with us.

Upload a video, submit a photo of the people in your lives you appreciate, or tell us in the comments what you are thankful for!

Well, it's hard for me to match Joan's priorities in life, but I'll give it a try: 1. Thankful for my health and the health of my loved ones and friends 2. Thankful to those who gave their life for this country 3. Thankful to those who risk their lives for this country and their fellow man 4. Thankful to those whose charitable givings helped those in need 5.. Thankful I live in a country where I have so many liberties and freedoms 6. Thankful for the gifts and opportunities I have received

JTB - so beautifully said! Me: I am thankful for my beautiful family - for a husband who loves me and takes care of me, and for my two beautiful little boys who love hugs and always put a smile on my face. And I'm thankful that we are fortunate enough to have the wonderful Thanksgiving feast we're about to eat today! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

I'm thankful for the best kid in the world. He's funny, polite and sweet as sugar. He loves me too! I'm thankful for my wonderful friends, Kerri and John Atkinson who I will spend Thanksgiving with today! Happy Thanksgiving to all the world. They may need food. I pray that they have what they need to celebrate this day.
