...for my child, my wife, their health, my job, my brothers (you know who you are), and for the budding friendships; current and those still to come.

Thank you for caring enough to come here, to share your dreams, your passion, and your sincerity. The URL doesn't matter but the community you create sure does.

I have a great life, but spending too much time in a studio with more time spent away from a traditional band situation, and a mate in Grad school (when will it ever end?), I'm thankful for a place to chat about nerdy guitar stuff with you all. Thanks guys!

The rest? It's just stuff...

P.S. But as long as we're mentioning "stuff"...

I'm very grateful to have survived my childhood & college years (they almost killed me, twice), thrilled to own a beautiful home with my wife, and stoked beyond belief to not only be in my dream career but to be considered a leader in it. Oh, and I get to play some really cool instruments every once in a while, too. Cool!

For my girls, for never losing hope, the power of conviction, friends, the medical advances that keep me moving, for not foolishly spending everything I ever made, for the good memories of loved ones no longer here and for having a place to go when I need to be gone.

I don't know if I'm less thankful as usual or more thankful.

My health went bad about 5yrs ago. Even went off work for 2 years. I hate being off work. Got back to work in 2010 but only because I begged doctors to let me go back. Realistically I'm in pain every day , getting worse, and i can't find a doctor to help me. The Womans mother went through Cancer around same time frame, that resolved in a good way, took a long time, very thankful for that but then this time last year My woman got tested for Cancer as well. 2 days before xmas we were called into the doc's office and told she probably has Cancer. Long story short, and several tests over and over, we went through a roller coaster ride of she doesn't have it / she does have it right up to about 3 weeks ago. She had surgery to remove what she did have during the summer and had to wait until now to see if its gone, and is now ok for now. Leaving out details on purpose here. But literally the day after we got her resolved her aunt of 49years of age went in the hospital very sick. Also Cancer, she didn't make it and died a very painful death (bone cancer) just over a week ago. We are all very close. Now to make matters worse, another family member may have throat cancer and just waiting results on that. She is also not well, and I fear at her age 78, we will lose her as well and she is literally the heart of the family.

Cancer sucks. I'm not thankful for that in any way whatsoever, but very thankful my woman is ok for now, but its been a very rough few years for us. Very Hard to stay positive. Which is why I got back into guitars as of late. Takes my mind off of the pain I'm in, and all the other stuff. Even if it's just a few mins here and there.

I am thankful for my family, my friends, my life...and how very fortunate I am that I have today with them. (I never mentioned it but I was in a terrible car accident 5 weeks ago... one of my son's (age 5) was in the car...and we both walked away from it miraculously...my son is perfectly fine...I fractured some ribs...but a heck of alot better than the alternative.)

I am thankful for the present....I am thankful for today.

I am also thankful for the new friends I have met through here.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

I am very sorry for the difficulties that you are facing...they are not easy...a few years back I went through a very difficult period in which I faced horrible pain and doctors visits pretty much 24/7. All I can say is that you do the best you can for today. Be greatful for what you have...approach each moment with courage and try to keep the moment in perspective...we (meaning humanity are exceptionally bad at accurately forecasting what the future holds for us). My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family this Thanksgiving. Mojo being sent your way!

Thankful for a Bonni Pink C24 at Experience that whispered my name. Thankful to Paul & Co. for caring about making guitars and caring enough about his buyers to put on a wonderful party every year. Thankful that for the pain I live with every day, I will not let it win and even in in the throes of life, someone can see you and feel something that goes beyond the everyday. Thankful for the possibility of love that are there when we are open to them. Thankful for the good in people that usually manifests, yeah I know, not always, but usually. Thnakful for the understanding that what looks steadily dark can burst into the sunshine when you don't expect it.
Thankful for unexpected Grace.

Things have been tough lately, but I'm thankful for my loving and supportive wife, wonderful son, caring family, amazing friends and a career I am proud of. All the people who are close to me, make me a better person.

I'm thankful for all the usual things expressed here ... But especially for the return this week of my son from a year teaching English in Bali. At this point it looks like he will be leaving in January for either Istanbul or Moscow.

It's Friday morning as I write this, the day after Thanksgiving in the USA.

I'm thankful for a number of things. I won't get into them now, but I would like to say a special thanks to the people who invited me into their home yesterday. I was a total stranger to most of them, but by the end of the day we had started getting to know each other. The day turned out to be totally different than what I had expected (in a good way), and I'm grateful for that.

I hope everyone had a safe, wonderful day yesterday.

All the best to everyone, Lloyd

+1 on what has been said before, but will add...

On my side of the family, we've been very lucky - my father is one of six children, my mother one of three. Of that lot, my mother's half-brother has died, and two of the spouses from my dad's family, but none of the six. At my daughter's graduation 2.5 years ago, we got a picture of the six (and I was in hot water because the camera battery had died) because we figured it would be the last time we'd have them all together, which has held true largely because my aunt has said she doesn't want to make the long trip again.

On my wife's side, both of my in-laws lost their remaining siblings this year - my FIL was one of five, MIL one of three. She was something like 7-10 years younger than her sisters, so I told my wife she's enjoying the benefit of being the baby of the family. My FIL had a bit of survivor's guilt because he's not the youngest - I believe he had two younger siblings, but I know that the youngest died a few years ago.

We were able to have both of our entire families (our parents and our siblings) together at both meals. There's always a sense of "we may not have this next year" to these gatherings, but we'll take them while we can.
