Plenty To Be Thankful For!

Plenty To Be Thankful For is my favorite video from last year. What are you thankful for on the eve of this most beloved and uniquely American holiday?

Alex and mom 2

Everyday I count my blessings for my beautiful and thoughtful children (now young adults) and today I am especially grateful for my very hard-working and sweet son Alex. The last batch of several hundred bulbs needed to go in the ground. We did speed planting along the HarborWalk and, in less than 45 minutes–done! Thanks so much Alex for your much appreciated help! His new truck, that he saved for with his hard earned money, came in handy, too!

I am so thankful too,  for my wonderful GMG family of friends!

Please forgive the old photo–it only annoys my son when I try to take a snapshot!



  • Sounds like Gloucester received a blessing today ~ thank you Alex and Kim!


  • Kim…Love that you do that piece each year…Its awesome and I loved your choice of background music. My Cousin Frankie stated it perfectly…Family, Food and Football…Happy Thanksgiving all!


  • Kim you asked what are you thankful for? I’m very thankful for a beautiful and strong wife, Cathy Ciolino Frontiero. Four beautiful and thoughtful boys and my son’s very nice and artistic Girlfriend Erinn Whitmore. Oh Yeah and salted mixed nuts. 🙂 it’s going to be a tough holidays. sorry to bring your post down.


    • Thank you Paul for sharing about your beautiful wife and sons, and son’s girlfriend.

      I imagine for you someday Paul your home is filled with happy, laughing grandchildren. In all your grandchildren, you will see the face of your beautiful son that was lost, because a part of him will live on in their beautiful spirits, as it lives on in yours. I know this, because when my grandmother died, and then when my brother died (both to whom I felt very close to in my heart), I felt very, very strongly some part of their spirit entered into mine. Your son was ripped from your lives, tragically and suddenly, as was my brother, and it may take longer for that spirit connection. When it does, if it hasn’t already happened, I hope it will bring you a sense of great peace.


  • Kim thanks for your kindness and thoughtful comments I really appreciate -Dedicated to all to be thankful for – this thanksgiving eveeryday hug them and tell them you love them I do with my wife.
