Community Spotlight 2018: What Are You Grateful for This Thanksgiving?

Thanksgiving is a time where many of us reflect upon the things in our lives that we feel most grateful for. While having arthritis can be difficult physically and emotionally, we asked our community to come up with some of the reasons they can count their blessings this year. Here are some of our favorite responses!

I can breathe!!! I’m recovering from pneumonia. After just 2 days on meds…. Thank You G-d for the gift of breathing.
