A Patch Columnist Gives Thanks

Last year, Patch columnist Christine Wolf made a list of things she was thankful for on Thanksgiving day. This Thanksgiving, we're reprinting her list and asking readers to chime in. What are you thankful for this year?


  1. Friends who trust me to keep a copy of their house keys (and those willing to keep copies of mine).
  2. Three amazing children and a husband of twenty years who cleaned the entire kitchen after Thanksgiving.
  3. Living in and writing about Evanston.
  4. My health -- and health insurance.
  5. My parents, sisters, aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews.
  6. My dog, Jack.
  7. Indoor plumbing.
  8. In-laws.
  9. All the ups and downs in life; they sure keep things interesting.
  10. Comcast internet (when it works).
  11. My mother's cranberry apple pie.
  12. A sense of humor.
  13. Your eyeballs on these words.
  14. A song that 1) makes me want to dance AND 2) sends an awesome message.
  15. Tweezers.
  16. Freedom of speech.
  17. Facebook.
  18. The fact that I won't be anywhere near the Black Friday shoppers.
  19. The person who shot the video of this basketball game...

And that's just a start.
