Giving Thanks

        As Thanksgiving approaches I think there is no better time to reflect on what we are thankful for in our lives. Ever since I moved out of the house I have this new appreciation for the little things in my life. Here are a few things I am thankful for.

             1. My family. In high school I was ready to move on to bigger and better things, but now I

realize that I had it all right at home. I am thankful for all the life talks I had with my dad either in his office after school or riding together in the combine during harvest. I’m thankful for my mom and all the sacrifices she has made and continues to make for our family. I’m even thankful for my annoying little sister, I miss our car rides jamming out to our favorite songs. I appreciate these three more and more every day, and I would not trade them for the world!

             2. My friends. After graduation my friends moved all over,
some joined the military, others went to college, and one is even in Cambodia. Even though we have all gone our separate ways we still find the time to text and sometimes get together. It’s always fun to reminisce on all the memories we made together and to make a few more.

             3. Finally, I’m thankful for my mom’s home cooked meals. My teammates and I do cook at the house, but nothing beats coming home and eating a good home cooked meal.

As we celebrate what we are fortunate to have this Thanksgiving, remember to be thankful for the little things. Take the time to tell your family and friends that you love them and savor that amazing Thanksgiving meal.

Always thankful,
