Every year we celebrate Thanksgiving with our family and close friends as we feast and give thanks for the people and things we love. Whether it be our family, close friends, sports teams, or even being thankful to have such a nice Thanksgiving, we all have something we are thankful for. I am thankful for many things in my life, but here are 15 of the most important things in my life that I am thankful for!
