101 Things We're Thankful For This Thanksgiving

101 Things that we’re ALL Thankful for this Thanksgiving.  Please chime in & comment.

Instead of me writing everything that I’m thankful for, I thought it would be a cool idea to write one thing that I’m ABSOLUTELY thankful for and have 100 other people share the thing that they’re absolutely thankful for this Thanksgiving.

I’ll be creating a new post with all the results from comments below and will link to those that put a #hashtag# and Tweet the thing that they’re #ABSOLUTELY thankful for!

Here’s an example:  #ABSOLUTELY

So the question is:

What are you #ABSOLUTELY thankful for this year?

I’ll start.

I’m #ABSOLUTELY thankful for Twitter.

Never before in the history of mankind has it been so easy for the average person to get their voice out there in a massive way and have the ability to build a huge following with little to NO money at all.

Twitter, you’ve helped my business so much and I’ve built some amazing relationships because of you.  I’m thankful for you Twitter.

What you’re thankful for can be a Person, Place or a Thing.

  1. I am thankful that I am never without an idea and I am able to move forward on them in order to learn where I can go to next!

  2. I can think for myself and I am aware of what I can do to make a difference

  3. I, too, am thankful for Twitter and new relationships, conversations exchanged, joys & sorrows shared – life enriched!

    I’ve been thinking about Twitter’s magnetism, which can be addictive. Why? All people desire relationship. The result of this pondering is that I’m now more thankful for friends and family who don’t share Twitter, and I’m taking action to make more time to be with people I love.

    Bottom line, I’ve been thanking God for my online and offline friends!

  4. I am very thankful for having my family! My two little boys are my light and my drive! I have a wonderful Wife and family! AND its getting bigger every day! The fact that I connect with most of you twitter is wonderful!
    Thanks to all!
    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!

  5. What a great idea!

    I am thankful for the power of the internet. It gives me the ability to work from home and be there for my family!

  6. When my daughter was 4,
    she was thankful for Daddy and Scotch tape ;-)


  7. I am incredibly thankful for my two children, who have stretched me so far outside my comfort zone (sometimes painfully!) that I dont even recognize the person I was before they entered my life. They have been my sole source of motivation and determination, and they have shaped me into the person I am today.

    And they think I am raising them… :)

  8. I am thankful for my wife, three boys and extended family; the freedom we have in the United States; and those who gave their all so we can enjoy it. Above all I am I am thankful for a God who gave his Son for my sins so I can have the ultimate freedom.

    Happy Thanksgiving Alejandro and everyone!

  9. I am thankful for family and friends. Without them, life would not be what it is. Thanks!


  10. I’m #ABSOLUTELY thankful for health. Having it is lucky, a gift, I work hard to maintain it, and I never take it for granted.

    I’ve been given the opportunity to be a good friend, partner, dad, husband, athlete, teacher, coach, adventurer, artist and student all because I’ve had the good fortune of health. Without it, I would be a prisoner.

    I’ve witness my father, friends and loved ones imprisoned by serious health issues, and how they had to give up their mobility, aspirations and passionate pursuits…So I cherish it and do my best to extend my time spent healthy as much as possible. I’ve had some brief brushes with serious illness, and it’s then that you realize how lucky you’ve been all along. Appreciating the opportunities gained through good health are so very important.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you, Alejandro & all your family and peeps! :)

  11. Oops. Forgot to add my Twitter ID: @ChrisNalty

    Also, I forgot the “ed” on “witnessed” in the third paragraph. My mom was an English teacher, so I compulsively proof my own typing. Nuts! :D


  13. Im thankful for our AMAZING NEW PRESIDENT – Barack Obama.
    Im thankful for my family business that grants me a paycheck
    Im thankful for my health
    Im thankful for my wife and son (most importantly)


  14. #ABSOLUTELY thankful for the path I’m on and the wonderful people I’ve and will meet in the future!

  15. Very thankful for the Freedom that being a US citizen allows us to have. Oh, and of course family, friends, food on my table and a comfortable lifestyle.

  16. I am ABSOLUTELY thankful for my husband. His drive, dedication, and willingness to pursue his dreams have changed our way of life… without him all the other things I am thankful for would exist (our home, our fun adventures, and most important our son ;)

    Happy thanksgiving Alejandro & Family!

  17. Hi all,

    I’m #Absolutely thankful to the Almighty for giving me my dear and near ones and keeping them in good health. To the makers of Twitter for giving common people like me an opportunity to be in touch and develop such amazing personal relationships with people who we would have never been able to meet and interact otherwise. E.g. I met Guy Kawasaki @guykawasaki on the 10th of September at a Tweetup and get his autograph on my copy of The Art of the Start. Without Twitter that would have not been possible.

    Best Wishes,


  18. I’m grateful to Michelle and all the wonderful people who are on the internet who are helping me to make huge profits from my efforts.

  19. I am so thankful for having Alejandro and family in my life even though I have never met any of them. I am thankful for every new person that has entered my life in the last calendar year and also for everything positive or otherwise that has happened because it brings me right where I am at.

    There are lessons in everything. Please God let me see the message and the lesson to be learned.

    In short thankful for being open minded and willing to learn.

  20. I was going to whine because I can’t stand tonight (literally).

    But it is because I dragged groceries home for my kids.

    I am grateful I’m not watching my children go hungry,
    but instead have enough to eat.

  21. I’m incredibly thankful for a warm roof over my head, plenty of food, good books, that I’m in remission and my seven cats.

  22. I am thankful for my family,friends,the internet,my faith and spell check ;)
