Thought for the day: What am I thankful for?

Today (in America) is a very special holiday… it is the holiday where you make a big turkey, eat way to much mashed potatoes and gravy, and stuff yourself till you are in a food coma.

However, this holiday may be great because you get off school and eat delicious food, but it is also the holiday where you sit around and really think of things you are thankful for.

Today is Thanksgiving.

So naturally, since I can’t cook and it is extremely hard to find a turkey here in London, I figure I could name all the things I am thankful for.

I am thankful for having such an amazing supportive family. Without them I would be lost, unmotivated, and probably never have moved to London for graduate school.

I am thankful for my mommy. She is who I want to be like when I am one day a mother. She has always been there to support me, whether she thinks I am wrong or right. I love her so much. I don’t know what I would do without her.

I am thankful for my London family. They have kept me sane while stressing out over classes. They are there whenever I need them. They make London feel like home.

I am thankful for having the opportunity to study overseas. This experience will be one I will never forget.

I am thankful for all my amazing friends. Especially the ones who still keep in touch even though I am far away. You guys mean the world to me. I love you all!

I am thankful for my course mates (which also count in the family/friend category). They make class exciting and fun…even when it is anything except that. They help me not stress out and if I am stuck, they help me out.

I am thankful for anyone who reads my blog. You are helping me become a better blogger…which I need to not fail.

I am thankful for the roof over my head and the funds I have to live securely. I could live without these things, however they make life a little easier.

I am thankful for all the teachers and coaches that have been a part of my life. Without you and your guidance, I would not be where I am today.

I am thankful for being alive. I try to live my life to the fullest, since you only live once.

I am thankful for the beauty of life.

I am thankful for being thankful.
