Giving Thanks

I am thankful for being alive and healthy in this wonderful wide world of ours.

I am thankful for my extraordinary family. I am thankful that each and every member of my family is loving and caring, generous and welcoming. I am thankful that each and every member of my family is a respectable human being, which is sadly becoming less and less common these days.

I am thankful for the clothes on my back and the shoes on my feet. I am thankful for the food in my belly. I am thankful for having a roof over my head and a pillow beneath it.

I am thankful for my three amazing brothers, each of whom I could probably write a novel about. But I'll keep it short, since most of you know them anyway :)

I am thankful to be born to the most wonderful parents ever to raise children; who would, and have, sacrificed much in the name of giving the best for my brothers and I; who taught me honesty, respect, love, and good morals; who gave me a good education; who are there for me whenever I need them; again, a novel for each of them, but I don't have that kind of time or focus.

I am thankful for the opportunity to go out and explore and experience the world.

I am thankful for my gorgeous golden-red locks.

I am thankful for having the means to buy new socks, should I get tired of the holes in my current pairs.

I am thankful for my little magical plastic box that plays all my favorite music whenever I tell it to.

I am thankful for bananas. They're delicious.

I am thankful for the internet. Without which, it would be much harder to keep in contact with you all.

I am thankful for the invention of glasses and contact lenses.

I am thankful for being given the freedom and opportunity to do and be what I want in life; whether it be a doctor, a business owner, or a bum.

I used to be so hasty to grow up and graduate from the kids table at grandma's house every Thanksgiving. Now, I would give just about anything to be back at that table.

I wish you all a happy Thanksgiving and happy holidays! Love you and miss you all!
