I too learned the greatest lessons of life from my son who was born with cerebral anoxia and lived as a 6 week old baby for 32 years, than his spirit went to heaven. I learned to be thankful for the little things like walking, talking, swatting away the fly that landed on my nose, eating, the privilege of working--things he was unable to do --but thru it all never complained, had a smile and twinkle in his eye when you talked to him or he heard the sound of music. He taught me patience--he was totally dependent on me and others to meet all of his needs. And most of all he taught me love-unconditional love--that no matter what I looked like or felt like he would smile at the sound of my voice and just wanted to be talked to or rocked--so little but yet so much. We all have so very much to be grateful for, and we all want to be loved. It costs nothing to have a grateful attitude, and nothing to tell someone you love them or care about them---give your thanks to God and pass on His love that He has showered each one of us with. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.
