    Asheville, NC (WLOS) -- One woman says she has plenty to be thankful for after celebrating 106 Thanksgivings in her lifetime.

Louise Vetere was born in 1912 in New Orleans.

On Thursday, she was in South Asheville with her family for a traditional Thanksgiving meal.

Vetere told News 13 she has a lot to be thankful for.

"That's what I'm thankful for, that God gave me grandchildren. They're the best!" she exclaimed.

"I want to wish everybody a Happy Thanksgiving ... and everybody should be happy, as I'm happy today with my grandchildren," Vetere added.

It's sound advice for anyone on Thanksgiving.
