KNOM listeners and followers shared messages of what they are thankful for this Thanksgiving.

“I am thankful to be home with my mom, who had a stroke three years ago and has dementia. Some days are just stressful but day by day, it’s good to be with her. I am also thankful to be sober since July of this year. “
