As the holidays approach, we’d like to know about what you’re thankful for — not only the who or the what, but the why and the how.

Please share the story of when you became thankful for something in your life, a time when you stopped taking something for granted or realized how important a person is to you. For example, we’re thankful for you, our readers, because you share your opinions with the Star and the community and remind us of how diverse and engaged Tucsonans can be.

We want to know your stories.

Please share your tales of thanks online at

We’ll publish a collection of responses over the holiday season.

With thanks,

The Arizona Daily Star
