Here’s what made you thankful this Thanksgiving


Thanksgiving is a time of the year when we reflect on what we’re most grateful for in our lives. While the holiday is most often a time when family and friends gather and eat turkey and all the fixings guilt-free, more importantly the day offers a chance to refocus and to see all that we have to be thankful for.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, Global News invited you to share what makes you grateful.
