What are you thankful for, west central Minnesota?

"I am thankful to be able to live and raise my family in a small town, and to be surrounded by people with similar lifestyle desires."  Chuck Johnson, Director, Perham Economic Development Authority

"I'm thankful for my family and the spirit of the holiday season." Laurissa Stigen, Executive Director, Central Minnesota Area Health Education Center
"I'm thankful that I get to spend Thanksgiving surrounded by family and friends. I'm grateful that they and loved ones I can't be with are all well this holiday season. I'm thankful that I get to play games all day long (in between the eating, of course)! And I'm thankful that they make medication to help me with my cat allergies since my gracious Turkey Day host has three kitties." Sheri Holm, WCI Communications Director
"In this tough economic time, I am thankful for what I do have . . . a healthy, happy family, a great job and a place to go home to at the end of the day. The downturn has forced me to reevaluate my priorities. Although difficult, sometimes we need to do this." Marsha Erickson, WCI Program Assistant

I am thankful for the gifts my family give me, things like:
A grandchild's smile.
A daughter's hug.
A son's wisdom.
A son-in-law's patience.
A spouse's encouragement.

I am thankful for the people I work with and the gifts they bring to the community table: commitment, dedication, strength, trust and wisdom.

I am thankful for my family, my friends, and my partners in community efforts who help me to be the best person I can be.

I am thankful for the presence of caring individuals in my life who show me in small - and big ways - that I matter.

I am thankful for my family, especially my four grandchildren. I am thankful to have a job I love and for all the passionate people that are working to improve the lives of our youngest citizens: our infants, toddlers and preschoolers.
