(We don't have thanksgiving in the United Kingdom, so I will just write what I am thankful for here. :3)

What am I thankful for?
I am thankful for everything and everyone in my life, however big, however small, I don't care what other people think about me and my life because I know how thankful I am for everything. I am thankful for my house and my big family to support me in what ever I do, they are always there for me, which I cannot thank anyone enough. I am thankful for every day I have beacause recently there was a major crash on a road I regularly travel on (35 car crash) and I pray for everyone who died in that crash and I am thankful that I wasn't on that road when it happened. I am thankful for every meal I have, I think of all the children in poverty in Africa and some parts of America and England it makes me thankful of what I receive from my parents etc. I am thankful for everything I recieve on my birthday and christmas I hate people spending money on me but if they are going to, you cant really stop them so I am majorly thankful for that. Last but not least I am thankful that I live in a area with such community love and no theft or major citys, I am thankful for everyone and everything in my life I am thankful for having such a great family on here aswell.

Kinda long.. Good luck to everyone else (:

What am I thankful for?
The question is what am I not thankful for?

When thanksgiving comes around, my whole family from my moms side gathers together for about a week. It's a time that I always look forward to in the year. After many amazing years with them, I never really realized how lucky I am. Lucky to be able to have a roof over my head. Lucky to have food and water, to be able to survive. Lucky to have a family that loves me and will be there for me no matter what. I never really realized how thankful I should be for all of these things. I have amazing friends who are there for me through thick and thin. And now that i think about all of this, i feel like the luckiest girl in the world. Now that I have finally realized how lucky i am, my goal is to pay more attention to my surroundings, live life to the fullest, and cherish the moment. <3

I am thankful for..

I am thankful for many things. First of all, I am thankful for my family, friends, teachers, and everyone who has supported me in my life, especially everyone on this wonderful site. I don't know where I would be without you guys. I am thankful that I am healthy, and able to participate in sports, and other activities, because some people don't have that ability. I am thankful for our food, water, and shelter. There are millions of people all across the globe who have no place to live, to food to eat, and no clean water to drink. Which brings me to another point, I am thankful that people have kind hearts. That they are able to help those in need, and help make the world a better place. We need teamwork to make this world go round. Also, I am thankful for education. I am grateful I have the privilege to learn, and become educated. Finally, I am thankful for Bearville Place. It is an outstanding site, and it occupies my free-time. I enjoy coming online here, and talking with all of my friends (: Because they cheer me up, and brighten my day. So thank you all, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Don't forget to eat that Turkey ;D.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Here are somethings that I'm thankful for. First, I'm thankful for my family. My family is so, so supportive. They also care about me so much. There always there for me, no matter what. Secondly, I'm thankful for my friends. All of my friends are so different, but that's why I love them. All of my friends are there for me. For example, when I'm upset, or just having a bad day, they always comfort me. Thirdly, I'm thankful for my food I get because not everyone in the world gets food, but, I'm one of the lucky one's that do. Fourthly, the shelter I get. Well, without my house, I'd be pretty cold. Fifthly, I'm thankful for Bearville Place! Oh my goodness, this is an amazing forum. I've tried other forums. There was cyber-bullying and everyone writing rude comments. So I quit those forums. But Bearville Place? No such things like that happenes! And everyone on here is so kind. What I also love is people are so open to each other. Lastly, I'm thankful for everything I have! Well maybe except homework, and math, but, those things do make me smarter, so, yeah. I do love everything I have! Those were some things I'm thankful for. :)

Well, what I'm thankful for is my family. I know it's common to everyone maybe but, I have my reasons, and others have theirs. One reason I'm thankful for my family is because we go through many struggles. (I won't state them.) But, we go through it together, as an entire family and probably eventually over come it. Another reason would be, at times when I don't have my BFF or any of my friends to talk to like with a problem probably. My mom, my dad, my sister, or my brother is there for me and, I can just explain my problem to them and they help me out by giving suggestions or advice. Plus, they REALLY go over board with me sometimes, as in get me ticked off and make me hate them at that time but, I have to get over it cause their my family & I love em'. But, seriously I hate them at the times they really get on my nerves. Another reason I'm thankful for my family is because they made me the person I am today. And I'm probably happy the way I am but, at times I'm not, but, I get over it awhile later. To sum it up, I have a few more reasons but, I'd rather not state them. Razz Some members of the community don't have any relatives or family. So, I'm grateful that I have. So, these are some of my reasons of why I chose my family of what I'm thankful for and why I do. <333


Good luck everyone! [:

What am I thankful for? Good question... I guess you could say I am thankful for my health. I cannot imagine what it would be like to be seriously ill, especially at this time, when many get ill with colds and flu, as well as more serious things. I'm thankful for my home. It may not be the biggest, or the most stylish, or the coolest, but at least I have a home. Many people are less fortunate than me. I am thankful that I have food and clean water. So many people around the world do not have these. I am thankful for my family. My mum and dad, and even my brother. Although they get on my nerves sometimes, I love them, and I am thankful that they are mine. I'm thankful for my friends. Where would I be without them? Who else could I go to for advice, for comfort, for companionship? I am thankful for the community in which I live. Most people who live here do not like it, but when I look at other communities, like some of the ones in London, where there were riots, I'm glad that didn't happen on such a large scale in my town. I'm thankful that I have technology. If I didn't, I wouldn't be able to keep in touch with friends who live a long way away, I wouldn't be able to watch my favourite tv shows, I wouldn't be able to... to come online and talk about Build-A-Bear... I'm thankful for that too! I'm thankful for Maxine Clark and all the people who work at the stores. I'm glad that they offer such friendly service, and work so hard to make high quality stuffed animals, and give them a life and a personality. I'm thankful that I am not a refugee. I cannot imagine what it must be like to have to leave my homeland because it's too dangerous. I'm thankful for creativity. I love the process of making something beautiful. I love experiencing creativity in other people, with art, and music. Just think how dull things would be, if they didn't have an element of creativity. I'm thankful for nature. Plants, animals, countryside... it's amazing and beautiful!

Pen-ultimately, I am thankful that I am alive. Although life can get tough, it is good!

And finally... I'm thankful that I can be thankful! So many people find it hard to be thankful because they focus on all the bad things! Thankfulness helps me through and for that, I am truly thankful!

The most important thing I am thankful for is life,it's amazing and my friends and family make it even better,I love them so much.Life is tough sometimes but we can overcome the toughness of it.Life is the best thing and we should all be thankful for it.I'm thankful that I have a roof over my head,a house,some poor people don't have a house and alot of people don't understand how hard it is for them and take having a roof over there head for granted.My family and friends,I don't know how far I'd be in life without them,i'd have no food,no water,no advice,no one to talk to or help me,no house,basically nothing because our friends and family are there to provide them great things for us.I'm thankful for my health,some people have things wrong with them and it can affect there life so when we,complain about something,think about the people who are ill,have nothing and are poor.I'm thankful for school.I dislike school but I wouldn't know nothing without school and I wouldn't be typing this right now because I wouldn't know how to spell,things.I'm thankful for everything I have.

I am thankful for having a kind family. My mom gave birth to me when she was young but she never gave me up like most moms do. I am thankful for my dad because he is always kind to me and always takes my side in problems, despite his hard life, and for serving for the country even at the cost of his own life. I love my sister so much because she is my sister, of course. There is really no other way of explaining that. I love my best friend, Amber, because even though her dad is in Iraaq serving for his country, she's still kind and sweet. I am also thankful for God, because he gave me a kind family, sweet friends, food & shelter, and a great life. ♥

I am thankful for my family, especially my Mum. I was bullied, and whenever I came home crying, my Mum would always be there to cuddle me, and make me feel better. She always works hard to look after me, and whenever she used to pick me up at school, she'd bring a special treat for us to eat on the way.
I am also thankful for my house. My parents designed it themselves, and it has a swimming pool, four bedrooms, and two bathrooms.
I am also thankful for my two best friends, Matt and Blake. They are amazing, and we hang out all the time.

I'm not really sure why I entered this, but it's worth a shot!

I have a lot of things to be thankful for, and it's taken me a few years to realize this actually. I am mainly thankful for my friends online, I don't know how I'd be alive without them. Especially the ones on BP. I can always talk to them no matter what, and I have no one I could do that with in real life, so basically, I am mostly thankful for that. I'm thankful that I am capable of recovering from all the things that's happened to me over the years. It's something really important to me, and I'm glad I've finally found enough strength to. I'm thankful for all my talents. Including writing, dancing, and singing. Their an easy way to express myself, and if I go without them for a certain while, I go crazy. I am thankful for my flaws. Yes, It's odd to thank for flaws, but who would really want to be perfect? That would be no fun now, would it? I'm thankful that I've made it to America, and that my family moved here. I may not like them much, but this is the best thing they've done for me. I am thankful that here in America, I can have a life. That I am partially free to be who I want to be, and that I have found so many wonderful things and people here, who have touched me deeply. I am thankful for all the friends who have passed through my life, but are now gone. They've given me strength along the way, even though they are now gone. Lastly, I am thankful that I've found Kerli. Now, I can no longer feel like an outsider, and I've found a special part of me that I will have forever, and will never let go.

Thanks for reading...I needed to get all of this off my chest. (:

Have you noticed my mood is always: 'Grateful'? It's mostly because I really am. I never realized how much bad things can happen to you, and right now I'm thankful to everything good, even the bad, because I know there's a meaning to it. I'm thankful for being free. I never noticed, but it's a great thing not to be taken for granted. I'm thankful for such a great family for raising me so well, and also just loving me. My brother too, even for annoying me [with so much love], so grateful! <3 I'm thankful for music and freedom of expression, because it's my life to sing & dance {music}. I'm thankful for my friends, online & in the real world, for they have helped me be me, and I can always count on them. I'm thankful for anyone who just makes me feel good and compliments me, or says hi, because I never really get it. I'm thankful for food, water, even when I open the fridge & pantry constantly just for junk food (and dont find any :p). I'm thankful for all these great inventions and devices, entertainment and just giving us a better enviornment. I'm thankful for the beautiful scenery I'm surrounded with. I'm thanful for the little things, that I don't even notice. I'm thankful for my enemies & haters, for they remind me to not become like them (and i have some fans, jk :p). I'm thankful that there is inspiration wherever I go. I'm thankful that I have a good education. I'm thankful for my saviour.

I can name everything in the world, I'm so grateful to it. ♥

This is for you

Thank you for taking the time to make a contest like this, and reading all our entries!
