What are you thankful for? we asked our readers.A simple question. But with so many answers.Little things. Big things. Things we have that others don't. The sound of a child's voice. A fluffy dog named Nunzio. A stranger's kindness. A set of bagpipes. A memory of closeness in a family that has grown apart. A hug, a laugh, the smell of rain. A second chance at life.Thousands of people sent us their notes of thanks, far too many, unfortunately, to publish here. What follows is just a small sampling of their amazing breadth.

Andrés Duany, the Miami-based architect and "new urbanist" who led the design team that came up with the Katrina cottages as an alternative to the toxic FEMA trailers, has developed something similar, though perhaps not as cute, for the homeless survivors of the Haiti earthquake. Duany and InnoVida, a manufacturer of fiber composite materials in Florida, have collaborated on a series of durable, inexpensive "Haitian cabins" that can be assembled in a day. Retired U.S. Army Gen. Wesley Clark and former Miami Heat star Alonzo Mourning have backed InnoVida's plans to build a factory in Haiti to produce thousands of the cabins per year.

Today is Mother's Day, and Toronto Raptors scoring star Vince Carter is sure to be sending flowers and a card to his mom, Michelle. Remember when teammate Charles Oakley criticized him for not taking on more scoring responsibility during the first three games of the team's NBA first-round playoff series with the New York Knicks? After Oakley complained that Vince should "be a man," Michelle responded with a sharp dig at Oakley. "Those who did the talking weren't doing too much on the court," she said.

It's "Prom Night" on Dancing with the Stars , and Jacoby Jones tells Karina Smirnoff he went to his prom "on a last-minute thing. " He was 5'7" and 160 pounds, and went stag. Once at prom, he played some pranks and got kicked out. Oooh, scandal! Jacoby's high school was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina when he was a college student. He's dedicating tonight's dance to his alma mater, Marion Abramson High School. During rehearsals, the Ravens player keeps saying "rhumba" to rhyme with "Roomba" the self-propelled vacuum cleaner.

Thank you for Jean Marbella 's article on the Freemasons ("Masons open their doors at least a crack," April 2). My dad, Justinus Gould, who would be 110 this summer if still among us, was a devout Mason and a member of Cassia Lodge. He was a deeply religious Reform Jew, being a life-long member of Har Sinai Congregation. My dad disliked any references to superstition and those types of matters. One of his greatest joys in life after mom and me and my family and equal to his work as a Capitol Hill attorney (he commuted)

Le'Ron McClain registered his first career touchdown when he made a 13-yard catch against the San Diego Chargers on Nov. 25. But if the rookie fullback weren't playing football, his career path might have taken a different turn. You were a human environmental sciences major at Alabama. What is that? It's like consumer sciences, stuff like pharmaceutical sales and computer stuff. I liked working with computers and all that. I'd love to work at the Apple store. Who is your biggest inspiration?
