We're grateful for family, friends and bacon

JUST being alive is something Gladstone residents are grateful for, but bacon is good too.

We asked our Facebook likers what they were grateful for, and partners, kids and family featured prominently in the answers.

Being alive, and living in a country free from war, were other popular answers.

Bacon also was mentioned a few times. Mmm, bacon.

Erin Perry said she was grateful for being able to wake up each morning and "know I am still alive and living life to the fullest".

Samantha Crane was grateful for "the safe life we lead", while Kaye Moana Cooper was happy about "living in a great country with no war and starvation affecting us".

Tracey Slatter had a different reason to be grateful, having received a lung transplant five months ago and "the precious gift of life".

What are you grateful for? Have your say in comments or on our Facebook post.
