As we all take time to gather with friends and family and count our blessings this holiday season, some of the moms in our TODAY family took a few minutes to share some of the things for which they are grateful. TODAY Moms give thanks: “I’m grateful for family and friends. And the fact that I’m working the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade means I don’t have to do the bulk of the cooking. By the time I get home the turkey’s on the table.” -- Meredith Vieira, TODAY anchor “I'm thankful that we're welcoming a grandchild into the family soon. They pay and we play!” – Ruth Peters, Ph. D., clinical psychologist and TODAY contributor “So many things to be grateful for this year: Little things like finding the right gel to stop hair frizzies when traveling, finally finishing, “The Big Book of Parenting Solutions” and that the Blackberry the TODAY guest threw across the set (and Matt said was mine) really wasn't. Then of course bigger things like my family being healthy. But nothing comes even close on my "grateful scale" than having my son back safe and sound from a tour of Iraq. I can't imagine a more meaningful Thanksgiving.” -- Michele Borba, Ed.D., parenting expert, author and TODAY contributor "I'm thankful that my 2-year-old son finally learned how to say ‘truck’ correctly instead of constantly saying, “Look Mommy -- a f*ck." -- Cecilia Fang, TODAY producer “I’m thankful that my boys recovered from swine flu and are well… at least this week. I’m also thankful that I now have flu vaccines for my patients to help keep them healthy this holiday season.” -- Dr. Tanya Remer Altmann, pediatrician, TODAY contributor, author and mom“My first Thanksgiving off from work in a decade! I can't wait to spend it around a table with my entire family and see everyone again for the first time in years.” – Amy Robach, TODAY anchor “I'm thankful for microwavable macaroni and cheese. When it comes time to make my boys' dinner, I can have this ready in four minutes and know it's a side dish they will actually eat. I know, I know. The old-fashioned kind takes just 10 minutes, but during those extra-crazy, dinner rush times, those saved six minutes are priceless!” – Meredith Reiss, TODAY producer “I am thankful my three kids still think it's cool to hang out with Mom and Dad on Friday nights. I'm also "super-thankful" my kids will be taller than me!” – Joy Bauer, nutritionist, author and TODAY contributor “I'm thankful that even though my daughter looks nothing like me on the outside, she's all me on the inside!" –- Carmen Wong Ulrich, financial expert, host of CNBC’s “On the Money” and TODAY contributor “I am thankful I have two sons who will never beg to borrow something from shoe and handbag collection!” -- Joanne LaMarca, TODAY producer “I am thankful for T9 in text. My kids will never answer their cell phones, but they return a text immediately. I am thankful that my college graduate son can finally afford to pay his own rent. Next year, I'm hoping he can pay his car insurance too! I'm thankful that my daughter finally cleaned her room this year, and I can see the floor for the first time in six years. And I am most thankful that we are all still healthy and love each other even though we are separated by a continent.” — Antoinette Machiaverna, TODAY producer “I'm thankful my 40-something-year-old legs can not only chase my twins around every day, but are still ready, willing and able to run marathons... and still walk the next day!” – Rainy Farrell, TODAY ProducerWhat are you thankful for?
