What Are You Thankful For This Year?

Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate your loved ones -- even the family pets.

On Monday, we asked our community members on Instagram and Twitter to submit images of the things in their life they are the most thankful for. Pictures of sweet cats and friendly dogs, as well as cherished relatives, topped the list -- although some other things made the cut, such as the right to vote and realizing your dreams.
