With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I figured now would be a good time for the Biofriendly Blog to cover some reasons to be thankful. I know most of us are thankful for the many people, opportunities and things we have in our lives, but I wanted to share these 50 reasons I have to be thankful. If you’d like to share some of your own reasons, I would LOVE to hear them in the comment section below, on our Facebook page or on Twitter.

I am thankful for:
