If the bombs go off, the sun will still be shining. Because we’ve heard it said that, Every mushroom cloud has a silver lining

Hi hey hello,

So, today is the day. The big day, Turkey Day, Engorge Yourself Days, otherwise known as Thanksgiving. This day is so widely celebrated as a day where we get together as families and eat food, and then watch football, the eat some more food, and maybe even consume some spirits. But do we really remember why we celebrate this holiday, we are supposed to be thankful for what we have. Now, I do not want to rant on and on, so I will move on.

I want to not just be thankful today, but every day of my life, because I am so blessed. I mean, I have three good meals a day, a big comfy bed, enough clothing, a roof over my head. That is a lot more than a lot of people in the world can claim to have. I also have a family, with two parents and lots of siblings, that more than a lot of people in America alone can claim to have. On this day every year, people sit down and think about what they are thankful for, but then move on. Why not be thankful everyday? I want to be able to say each day that I found something to be thankful for, no matter how huge or minuscule.

I will begin this challenge with a list however, of the things I am thankful for in my life.  I will keep it brief because I have scores of things to be grateful for:

What I Am Thankful For:

  • Family – who love and support me
  • Friends – who are there to kick me into shape when I need it
  • God – to loves me and guides me even when I am a total jerk
  • Music – for keeping me sane
  • You guys! – for encouraging me and keeping me accountable for this little blog

I love you guys! I hope you have a splendiferous Thanksgiving, full of family, thanks, friends, love, and of course a little food. I will hopefully have pictures up from our party this weekend!

What are you thankful for? Family? Friends? Work? School?
